We Are Haydon @ Home CHALLENGES  

In the current climate we as a school feel more than ever that Haydon’s values could not be more relevant. The purpose of this challenge is not to add to the sense of work to complete. This is an opportunity for your child to reflect on the positive things they have done so far, and can do to help support you as parents and carers and also maintain a sense of community around them at this unprecedented time.

Attached below is a list of 32 suggested tasks as a starting point. Students are welcome to add their own tasks to this list and to be as creative as possible in completing tasks that they think help embody one of our school values. The tasks should then be entered into the booklet as a way of logging completion, using photos descriptions and or video clips if appropriate. (Click here to download the booklet)
