Over the May half term holiday Mr Hughes and I had the privilege of taking 24 Year 9 students to Cumbria, sponsored by SGN. We stayed at an Outward Bound Centre in Howtown, on the edge of Ullswater Lake. The scenery was breathtaking!
Our week’s activities included, Jog & Dip, Tunnelling, Cliff Jumping, Canoeing, Rowing, Gorge Walking, an Obstacle Course and an Overnight Expedition. The students showed great resilience as they attempted all activates on offer, also learning invaluable skills such as leadership, friendship and above all, teamwork. We all had a brilliant week trying new experiences and pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones.
