Reigepark - Pathway to Extreme Execcelence (PX2)

px2 8

Growing up is full of challenges, contradictions, pressures and opportunities. It has always been this way, but these days, everything seems to be on a much larger scale. Positive, productive role models for young people are harder to find.

Career choices are no longer simple. And the critical thinking skills necessary to making the best career choices are not always taught in schools.

With this in mind Re-imagine Reiger Park, a community based initiative dedicated to the development of the Reiger Park community and communities like it, saw the need to expose students of Oosrand Hoër with a set of thinking skills to enhance their level of rational thought and assist them to set goals and realise their unending potential. This was achieved through an intensive three day workshop called Pathway to Extreme Excellence or PX2.

The course being a product of The Pacific Institute's main programme with young people builds on its core curriculum of Investment of Excellence(IIE) and is presented in a way that finds resonance with its targeted audience.

The programme has 12 units and is delivered by qualified and professional facilitators using short video bursts, group activity, discussion and personal reflection. The content is vibrant and colourful with music video "feel" incorporating animation, graphics and music.

Studies have shown that with no goals of our own, we become susceptible to loudest voices around us - whether it's good for us or not. PX2 teaches the art and science of goal-setting, combined with thorough understanding of just how we think, so that our young people come away with self-esteem and a strong ethical centre. It is one thing to know "the right thing", it's quite another to have the confidence to act on it. As parents or guardians, we are constantly on the look out for negative influence in the lives of our children. The challenge is to build strength of character, and strong self-belief, so that young people can stand up against these influences and maintain confidence in their own decisions.

This life-changing experience, promotes positive communication, building strong relationships and equipping individuals with effective thinking skills that act as a springboard to a successful future. A process has started with the school and students and members of Re-imagine Reiger Park and staff of The Pacific Institute will continue to monitor and mentor

students to ensure they envisage their desired goals.
