School Based Amazing Race

   

The Great race            Team Building

Character Builders Amazing Race has taken over as our most popular school based program. Students and staff alike are big fans of this character building experience that requires each participant to work with their peers to complete a number of challenges around the school. Students are encouraged to problem solve, collaborate and encourage each other during the process. Staff are welcomed to enter a team in the race as well. This heightens the involvement of students and sets a great example for all involved. We will provide all materials for the Amazing Race and we can be very flexible to keep the stations in areas that will not impede foot traffic or classroom activity. This is a very successful team building experience and has been enjoyed by many of our valued school clients.

  • meet deadlines
  • think laterally
  • learn about each other

The Big Picture



The Big Picture
       The Big Picture     

They say a picture paints a thousand words so to help get the message across we have designed a canvas workshop where each student as part of team must work together to make sense of the ‘big picture’.  Starting with an individual canvas, students must work together and design a team canvas to finally gel with part of giant canvas structure for the entire cohort. Our facilitators will take your students through a safe self-discovery and team bonding session to help them identify with their ‘big picture’. This is a very powerful activity that helps all students to acknowledge themselves and each other as part of the cohort. We supply all facilitation, paints, canvases, drop sheets and materials. The finished product is a real possession for the school and will look great as a feature for any wall.

The  Domino Theory

In World War 1 and 2 the Domino Theory was one of the West's greatest fears. As countries in the world fought to take possession of land the west believed that as one country toppled so too might the next and the next and so on. Today the theory used by Character Builders is a little different. Our focus is to encourage the positive vibes through team work and a few thousand dominoes.

Get ready to beat frustration and this tricky character builder. Coupled with little time and a huge supply of dominoes your students and staff will need to pull together to beat the clock and assemble a faultless domino rally. Are you up for the challenge?

Duration: 1-2 hours
