Cathedral Odyssey

The Cathedral Odyssey - an exciting set of challenges to complete as students embark upon their Cathedral Academy journey

The Odyssey of Homer is a Greek epic poem that tells of the return journey of Odysseus to the island of Ithaca from the war at Troy. In the Greek tradition, the war lasted for ten years. Odysseus then spent a further ten years getting home. Within the middle section of the poem, Odysseus describes all the challenges that he faced on his journey.

As our new Year 7 students are embarking on their journey, we thought we would set them 40 challenges to support their transition, their development, and to encourage them to participate in all of the opportunities we offer.

The Cathedral Odyssey contains a wide range of challenges, from having brilliant attendance, receiving lots of achievement points and reading plenty of books to going on trips, attending clubs and fundraising for charities. Students will be rewarded throughout the year when key milestones are reached.

Parents/Carers will need to support their child, as challenges such as attending Parents Evening will require your assistance. We would also really appreciate you encouraging your child to show perseverance in trying to complete all of the challenges.
