Year 7 Residential Weekend to LiddingtonPosted on: November 3rd 2016
Amery Hill School's new Year 7 thoroughly enjoyed their first residential trip, which was held at the PGL Activity Centre in Liddington, Wiltshire. With students joining Amery Hill this year from over 15 primary schools, the weekend was a great opportunity for them to get to know each other and for friendships to develop.
Students had the chance to take part in a range of exciting and challenging activities, including braving the heights of the giant swing and the zip line. They were challenged to think outside the box in problem solving activities and enjoyed navigating their way around the lake in canoes. As the evening drew in, students’ singing voices were heard around the camp fire and their communication and navigation skills were put to the test in fun team games in the dark.
Mr Chris Board, Progress Leader, commented, "It was great to see the students having such an enjoyable time, with many challenging themselves in unfamiliar situations. The students supported each other to work through the challenges and demonstrated some excellent teamwork.”
