Takeover Challenge

On Friday 24th November four children from our school council took part in the ‘Takeover Challenge. The ‘Takeover Challenge’ is a national event that puts young people into decision-making positions and encourages organisations and businesses to hear their views. Children gain a valuable insight into the adult world and gain experience of a workplace, while organisations benefit from a fresh perspective on their work.  Our pupils went to the Durham Learning Resource base at Spennymoor and ‘took over’ a range of tasks that go into preparing and delivering boxes of topic resources requested by Durham Schools.

The children started by completing a stock check during which they even identified errors that the staff in the centre had missed!  They moved on to selecting appropriate resources to create a resource box on extreme weather ordered by a class of Y5/6 pupils at a local school.  The group then used route planning software to map out a route for one of the drivers before collecting all of the  boxes from the warehouse to be loaded onto the van.

The children learnt a lot about the need for good  organisation and making sure every part of a job is completed thoroughly – lessons that will certainly help them in the future!
