The E-ACT Passport is an official document issued by a government (or an academy) to its citizens (better known as students) authorising its owner to take part in a variety of challenges and exciting experiences.
While the E-ACT Passport will almost certainly not be accepted at the check-in desks of most airports, it will definitely enable every one of E-ACT’s 18,000 students to take part in activities and challenges that aim to raise aspirations.
Who is the passport for?
The passport is designed for children from nursery up to the end of Year 13 and will give students access to life-enriching activities relevant to their age groups, as they graduate from one year to the next.
The passport works by giving students the opportunity to take part in a range of challenges or have enriching experiences in line with our values of thinking big, doing the right thing and showing team spirit.
Passport challenges provide E-ACT students with opportunities they may not even know exist. For instance, it may be that they are challenged to walk or run two-thirds of a marathon or take part in a mind relaxation course. They might even market and advertise a product!
The passport is about raising students’ aspirations and confidence levels so that they believe in themselves and understand that there is nothing holding them back, including where they happen to live or their family’s experience in education.
Thinking big and breaking those glass ceilings is so important. By giving students access to a broader curriculum through the E-ACT Passport, we can encourage them to step out from their comfort zones, build self-esteem and broaden horizons.
Don’t forget your passport…
