Risk Register

Through a variety of activities, initiatives and challenges students are offered the opportunity to learn, laugh, challenge each other and have fun together as they grow and develop individually and as a team.  

Through participation, students may be able to work together to solve problems and help each other achieve.  By working together each individual and the group as a whole will be offered the opportunity to develop, fine tune and extend the following skills:-

  • Communication
  • Initiative
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork

With most of the activities, initiatives and challenges offered on the Imagination Trail there is more than one way to solve a problem. or. complete the task ... but is that what is required of the group?  Success on the Imagination Trail is not about the volume of tasks completed, or the way, or the speed with which a group completes tasks.  Success is the way the group develops as a team, communicates together, includes everyone within the team and accepts the challenge before them.
