A cleverly designed journey map has allowed the students to follow whatever it is that interested them the most.  

The pupils have worked at their own pace and in their own styles, hopping between the decades, acquiring badges in Science, Nature, History, Culture, Rights and Sport. Their presentations have ranged from stop-motion animations, storytelling, posters, videos and science experiments, most of which have been researched and completed in their own time.

Since starting the club in November many of the pupils have acquired a number of badges, and Luke T in Form 2 has managed to complete all of the challenges for all 6 badges in just 3 months, no mean feat indeed!
