On Friday 6 October, Year 7 set off on a weekend adventure to PGL in Liddington.
The weekend was spent participating in a wide array of activities, including raft building, abseiling, vertical challenge, giant swing, survivor and zip-wire. Year 7 put 100% into the many activities and worked hard as a group to support each other, challenging themselves and overcoming their fears. The atmosphere throughout the weekend was one of fun, excitement and encouragement and brought all of the children together. Throughout the weekend Year 7 built new friendships and they should all be proud of their achievements. Here are the photos to prove it.
