28 Feb Inspire your students with a WPCA launch presentation
A WPCA launch presentation is incredibly valuable. Not only for your students who are doing the William Pike Challenge Award, but for your staff, your school and younger students too. Find out why you should have a WPCA launch presentation at your school with our top FIVE reasons below.
1. It’s a fantastic way to introduce the WPCA
The main purpose of a WPCA launch presentation is to introduce the William Pike Challenge Award to the students who are doing it in that year and inspire them to achieve their personal best. Hearing about how the WPCA came about and how it works from the man behind it all gives an invaluable insight for the students about to take part in the programme.
2. Puts a face to the name William Pike
A WPCA launch presentation allows students and staff to put a face behind the name ‘William Pike’ and the ‘William Pike Challenge Award. Listening to William talk and meeting him in person makes you realise that he’s a relatable, genuine Kiwi man, someone anyone can aspire to. He’s a real, tangible person, with a real story of overcoming challenge and change, just like every student in the room.
3. Connect with the William Pike Challenge Award personally
There’s no other way that a student can hold William’s prosthetic leg (seriously!) on their school stage, get a group photo with William or shake his hand other than with a WPCA launch presentation or inspirational talk by William Pike. Personally connecting with William is great as parents, students and teachers naturally become more invested in their schools WPCA journey and their own.
4. Attract more students to your school
A massive advantage to the school who is hosting the WPCA launch presentation is that they can invite students from their feeder schools, and this is exactly what Te Aroha College did. The younger students who come to the WPCA launch presentation get very excited at the opportunity to be involved in such an awesome programme at your school. This is especially helpful for smaller, rural high schools and intermediate schools.
5. Inspire students for a great price!
William Pike is an extremely entertaining speaker! Whether it’s a corporate audience of 2,500 people, or a school of less than 500 attendees, William’s captivating story is delivered in a way that inspires kids and helps them to overcome challenge and change that WILL come their way. For our William Pike Challenge Award schools only, William’s speaking rate is heavily discounted. It would be hard to find someone of his calibre to inspire your students at his rate anywhere else.
William recently visited one of our new schools, Te Aroha College, and held the very first WPCA launch presentation of 2019. You can read about that adventure here.
