Year 7 Have A Wonderful Weekend At Whitemoor Lakes
Year 7 were lucky with the weather last weekend as they enjoyed a wonderful three-day programme at Whitemoor Lakes Outdoor Residential Centre.
128 pupils took part in an itinerary that included fencing, canoeing, climbing, high ropes and problem solving. In small groups they rotated around the different activities, working together to complete the challenges they were set. In the evenings they enjoyed team games and dancing at the fabulous Saturday night disco. With no mobiles, Year 7 were off the grid and had time for plenty of old-fashioned fun.
There were lots of opportunities for pupils to develop their team working skills and the activities all helped to encourage initiative and develop resilience and social awareness. Over the weekend Year 7 all grew in confidence having approached new challenges with determination and enthusiasm and enjoyed a memorable three days.
Deputy Head – Pastoral, Beth Sharpe said, “This was a fantastic opportunity for our Year 7 pupils to bond together as a year group. They had an amazing time and were really supportive of one another as they worked together. I know they have come back into school with new friends and better able to work together as a team.”
Well done to everyone and a big thank you to all the staff and sixth formers who supported the trip.
