Global Issues Problem Solving (Competitive Programme Only)

Scenario Writing (Competitive Programme Only)
A creative writing activity for individual students that offers them the opportunity to enlarge, enrich and make more accurate their images of the future. Students are challenged to create a scenario of 1500 words, generally in the form of a short story, set at least 20 years in the future, arising from any one of the topics set for the year.


Community Problem Solving (Competitive Programme Only)
A real life action research activity where teams (or individuals) select a problem situation for investigation from within their own community and implement an action plan to solve the problem. Having analysed the situation using the FPS thinking process, they develop a plan to then implement their best solution to the problem. They submit a report that is focused on the implementation of that plan.
