The G.A.T.E.WAYS Challenge is an exciting team-based national competition which takes place in Term 4. School teams are made up of students who exhibit advanced abilities across the curriculum. Over the course of a day teams rotate through four different Challenges. The focus is on teamwork over individual performance. Each student has an opportunity to demonstrate leadership in one of the Challenges. Strong emphasis is placed on creativity, lateral thinking and problem solving skills. Information about the Challenge will be sent to schools in Term 3, so that once teams are selected, there is ample time to complete preparation activities.

Schools registering teams can access a comprehensive handbook with preparation activities including examples and answers. 

This year we are excited to be celebrating 20 years of the G.A.T.E.WAYS Challenge! The Challenge will run in the first few weeks of Term 4.

Enrolments open on 19 July, 2021.
