Weekly Family Challenges


During Lockdown, we recognise that our children will be having to spend more time on a digital device than they ordinarily would. It is essential that we spend time away form the screen and engage in activities that stimulate our brains and bodies in different ways.

Therefore we are setting the 'St. Benedict's Weekly Family Challenge'. This is a non-screen based activity that will require you to be creative and work together as a family team.

Each week, the task will be sent out to you and a Friday afternoon  will be assigned in the timetable to complete the challenge as a family. We invite you to share your efforts on your Google Classroom stream or upload for all to see on Twitter.
