The drainpipe challenge is Christ church SW9’s favourite team building activity. All you need are some lengths of drainpipe, a Ping-Pong ball, a bucket and lots of patience. The aim is to move the ball from one side of the forest area to the other without dropping it. It sounds easy except you are not allowed to move your feet when you have the ball in your piece of pipe and you cannot touch the ball with your hand. (to make it even harder the children have to stay in the same order as they started)
After every failed attempt we stand in a circle and discuss how we can improve our chances of success. We never move on to other activities until we are successful.
Never give up, except others strengths and weaknesses, help each other, work together and you will achieve your goals.
