Today the Hastings Opportunity Area’s Broadening Horizons team launched an adapted version of Badge Bonanza. The interactive website was originally developed for use by year five & sixes to take part in enrichment challenges, winning digital badges and prizes for each task completed, but the new offer sees a completely free platform open to children, young people and families across Hastings & St Leonards.
The platform offers a range of fun breaktime challenges, such as toilet roll keepy uppies, learning how to tie knots and how to juggle, along with sign posting to quality online resources for learning, parenting and careers. The platform also acts as a portal for wellbeing services and a variety of other relevant and useful information.
All content on the site will be regularly refreshed and updated, with weekly competitions with prizes to encourage children, young people and families to engage with enrichment activities. Badge Bonanza will continue to be developed in this way to offer a unique platform for Hastings children to access enrichment activities with links to local community enrichment activities.
