How much time will it require?

We know that teaching schedules are jam-packed, which is why we've designed this competition to be as flexible as possible. You do not need to allocate class time to take part, and there is no minimum amount of time required. 

There is also no need for any prior teaching or specific preparation required for the event.

  • Assign the Festival as a fun homework activity for your students.
  • Run the Festival as an extra-curricular event, and offer time for students to participate during lunchtime and/or after school.

Some teachers like to offer additional in-school rewards, such as House Points or Merits, to encourage friendly competition and boost student participation.
