Yale – Enrichment Activities

Throughout students' time on ORA's Yale Summer School, they will enjoy a wide range of enrichment activities and events to further their academic studies and cultural experiences.
Please note that these are example enrichment activities, which may change from year to year and vary according to age group and locations.

Team and Confidence Building Challenge

In order to facilitate the improvement of teamwork skills, the Team and Confidence Building Challenge provides students with a series of puzzles, riddles and tasks to complete in small groups. Each task is uniquely different, meaning that every member of the group has the opportunity to input specialist knowledge to aid the completion of the activity. This interactive workshop refines both confidence and teamwork skills, two fundamental skills for future success.

Public Speaking Competition

Intended to instil fundamental leadership skills, the Yale course offers ample opportunity for public speaking. The Public Speaking Competition is the culmination of these informative lessons and skill sessions, encouraging pupils to create their own presentations to perform to their peers with confidence, clarity and coherence. The activity ensures that students are able to practice this important life skill in a supportive environment.

Mind Gym

Mind Gym aims to alter thought processes by shifting core beliefs through positive thinking techniques. With the application of positive proactivity, the session encourages participants to change thinking and attitude approaches, ensuring they are provided with useful strategies to cope with future stress.


Expert tuition in public speaking ensures that students are equipped to make logical, coherent and convincing arguments. With a combination of essential skill sessions and practical opportunities to use their newfound talents, the debating element of the course ensures the chance to refine an important transferable skill for the future.
