William Pike lost his leg following an eruption on Mt Ruapehu and had to learn how to walk and do everyday things again. The challenges he faced inspired him to create the William Pike Challenge that our Year 8 students are now undertaking.
The William Pike Challenge Award is a year-long programme for Year 8 students that includes:
- Eight outdoor activities
- 20 hours of community service
- The personal development of a new sport or hobby
It also encourages a sense of community, accountability and empathy, environmental education, fit and healthy living, exposure to career pathways and life-long skills and hobbies.
