Challenges Overcome and Stars Won!


On the 23rd November, 50 lucky students from Woodland View Junior School, Norbury School, Lee-on-the-Solent Junior School, Loudwater Combined School and Miers Court Primary School ventured on a trip Into The Wild....

Our students were challenged to try new activities in a challenging environment, making new friends and showing excellent teamwork skills. It was great to see the children stepping out of their comfort zones and overcoming their fears.

The weekend kicked off to a Wacky start with some 'Wacky Races' - which included a race for the longest line, who could build the tallest tower of shoes and the challenge of presenting a group chant and dance to the other groups. The students got very creative!

Saturday morning consisted of Raft Building! It was great to see all the students getting involved and demonstrating their resilience against the grey and drizzly weather......

...fears were faced and confidence blossomed during the Zip Wire and Trapeeze.

For others, they found their calling in Orienteering and Problem Solving. It was fantastic to see how well all of our students came together.

We saw excellent teamwork and lots of stars were won!

We had a brilliant weekend with lots of students coming out of their shells and demonstrating our key talents: Confidence, Resilience, Self-Awareness and Communication!
