Coming Soon

As part of Challenge Antarctica Baz will be working with various schools both in the UK and abroad. This is a unique opportunity for children of all ages to get directly involved with a major expedition in the most remote part of planet. Children will get the chance to learn in a fun way and see Antarctica literally come to life before them.

This page in due course will show this work as it unfolds and will be a page that all children can come to in order to learn more about Antarctica. In the meantime the website below is highly recommended to begin the education

“Oakwood School have literally been transported to the Antarctic world through Barry’s passionate and inspirational visits, bringing us the opportunity to see, touch, hear and feel the magic of Antarctica. Barry’s personal determination, dedication and knowledge of the Antarctic is truly incredible and shines through in his workshops; our children have all relished learning more about his challenge and the Antarctic world. Barry’s warm and approachable manner with the children has led to tremendous engagement with Challenge Antarctica and has also highlighted many of the life skills we would like our children to develop – Barry’s personal drive, passion and lifelong ambition to achieve his dream has certainly been brought alive and inspired us all. As the challenge gathers pace we look forward to following Barry’s every step towards achieving this dream”

Barry Gray’s visit to Geneva English School, November 2017

Baz Gray’s visit to GES was truly inspirational. He enthralled us with stories of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration and with the courage and leadership skills of former explorers such as Ernest Shackleton. He was equally at ease speaking with our younger pupils and leading a workshop at GES Secondary. His visit has really captured the imagination of everyone at the school. Both children and staff are keen to embark on a number of interdisciplinary and cross-age projects through which we will discover more about the geography, ecology and wildlife of the fascinating continent of Antarctica. We can’t wait for Barry’s next visit later this term when he will tell us more about his preparation, training and equipment for the exciting expedition that lies ahead. We feel hugely privileged to be part of Challenge Antarctica. As Baz said, fewer people have been to the South Pole than have been into Space, so this is a rare and exciting opportunity for us.
