LionHeart Challenge

On Thursday 27th June and Friday 28th June, Year 10 pupils at Bloxwich Academy were provided with an excellent opportunity to take part in the LionHeart Challenge. Bloxwich Community Partnership have funded the exciting event where pupils had the opportunity to work in groups to research, develop and plan an event for a local demographic.

Pupils developed their ability to communicate, research local context and data and understand the financial requirements to run market an event. This not only included the development of an event, but also how to market and advertise. All skills developed during the day are transferable to furthering their education and into the working environment.

At the end of the event, each team had to present their event in full to the judging panel. The groups were judged on their finances, concept, marketing co ordination and presentation. They also were awarded for the overall winner.

The pupils represented themselves professionally and made Bloxwich Academy proud with their engagement and enthusiasm for the challenge.

Congratulations to Team 4 on both days. You were judged to have the best proposal for your chosen events and demographics. We now wait to hear if you are through to the final.

A special mention to a pupil that received a special award over the two days. Kobie Sargent was awarded “Most Outstanding Pupil” out of the whole year 10 cohort. Congratulations to him for his efforts, resilience and professionalism when supporting and leading his team.

Thank you to the LionHeart Challenge and to Bloxwich Community Partnership for funding the event and allowing our pupils the opportunity to develop their skills beyond the classroom.
