Task

Hide Me, Seek Me and Reward Yourself

Five gifts are hidden in the school yard, which students must recover and open to seek out the type of gift that is wrapped in each of the packages. Seekers are required to walk the entire school campus searching for the hidden gifts. However, clues will be given at various intervals to help students find the hidden gift.

Seekers in this game are from the lower stream and so they are asking for your help to find the packages that are hidden. Remember that these Kids cannot read, so you will be required to read the clues for them at various intervals. These intervals will be labelled "Gift 1-5",  so they will know where to look for the gift, before you proceed in claiming your reward which is simply done by following the link exactly below each "Gift Clue".

As you proceed towards the end of claiming your reward, please remember to record how much percentage you were rewarded for helping the seekers find their awards. You will have to add them up to find out how much of a great assistance you were to the seekers.
