Casebrook Challenge 2023

Samantha Kirk —

Your child will bring home their Term 1 Casebrook Challenge book this week.

Casebrook Challenge is a programme that replaces traditional homework - it allows students to choose and design their own tasks and acknowledges what they are already involved in outside of school.

How it works:

  • Students are able to select challenges from any section of the Graduate Profile to complete. The "design your own challenge" section allows students to create their own challenges, relevant to their interests and needs. It is also where activities they participate in outside of school can be acknowledged. For example, extra curricular activities, chores, and events.

  • Along with their challenges, students are expected to complete their reading log and tasks set on https://www.mathsbuddy.co.nz/

  • .All challenges must be signed by the student, a caregiver and the classroom teacher. Students must provide evidence for completed challenges; some examples include a brief write up, powerpoint, illustration or photograph.

  • We encourage all students to strive towards achieving a gold badge (requirements are on the front page). Gold badges will be awarded in a Casebrook Challenge assembly at the end of the term. 

Students wanting extra support with the programme can attend the Casebrook Challenge club in Room 10 on a Thursday from 3:00 - 3:45 pm. This will begin on Thursday 9th February.

Please make sure to read the badge requirements and information page with your child.
