I’ve been in to geocaching for a little while now and the plan has always been to create some. It’s there fore very exciting that the department have so far been awarded two grants to help us with this work. More details throughout the year.
A Creative Partnerships Legacy Grant – one of only a handful of schools to grab one of these. We will be working in partnership with a number of Creative Practitioners. Part of the brief is to develop a range of cross-curricular on-site geocaching trails.
The second is a SSAT Innovation Grant. This will help us develop a range of caches linked to the 2012 Olympics – more on this later.
One of the important roles that I play as a middle leader is to get in funding. In times of ever tightening budgets, if we are to truly transform parts of the curriculum, we need investment in order to do it.
