Year 8 Adventure to High Ashurst
On Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September, nearly 70 Year 8 students went to High Ashurst Outdoor Education Centre, enjoying a weekend of challenging activities and survival skills.
Students had the opportunity to develop team and communication skills as they negotiated a series of obstacles on a low rope course. There was high drama as students clambered up a Jacob’s Ladder and jumped onto a trapeze twelve metres off the ground! In addition to this, students learnt how to light a fire, brewed up some nettle tea and enjoyed some flame-grilled popcorn. The food was great with several students having seconds and everyone had fun staying in tepees.
Overall, the weekend was a huge success with memorable experiences for us all. There were smiles all round as parents/carers collected students on Sunday.
