Talents In Action: A Weekend of Fun!


During the weekend of the 18th of January, students from Baylis Court School, Purbrook Park School, Barnwell School, The Barclay School, John Henry Newman, King Edmund School, and Marylebone Boys’ School headed to the PGL Centre to spend some time with old and new faces as they challenged themselves to go Into the Wild!

The weekend was packed with different activities that brought the students to face their fears, challenge themselves, develop new skills, and earn lots of stars! There were great opportunities for teamwork as well as communication and leadership skill development. The students had an amazing time, smiling, laughing, and getting to know not only each other, but themselves as well.

Friday afternoon began with an exciting scavenger hunt followed by a game of Wacky Races! Students were challenged to perform different tasks, including building a tower out of their shoes. It was great to see them put their heads together and figure out the best way to keep their shoe towers standing.

Saturday morning brought on great communication and teamwork as the students worked together in Buggy Building and in Fencing!

​The trend continued as students encouraged each other to reach the top of Jacob's Ladder and fly down the Zipwire.
