On Monday, 29th of September, 30 Y9 students went for a week`s outward bound activities at the Outward Bound Centre, in Aberdovey, Wales. The visit was sponsored by the H.S.B.C Bank, who also sent along 4 volunteers to help with the visit.
The week was about students enjoying themselves but also doing something that perhaps they had never done before and pushing the limits of what they thought they could achieve.
The highlights of the experience were the run and dip on the first day, jumping off the jetty into the sea at Aberdovey and going on an overnight camp, but having to walk to and from the camp site, which for some was on the top of a mountain.
Our students also had to work with and enjoy the experience with students from Thrybergh Secondary School, Rotherham, who also attended the week.
Two students, Bailey Power and Sam Morley were rewarded for their efforts during the week with a free week`s stay at the centre worth £800 which they can take up before they reach 16 years of age.
All students got a great deal out the week and hopefully this may inspire them to achieve the best that they can in their lives....
