Year 7 Activity Day 21st September 2017

Year 7 Activity Day 21st September 2017

This year GMS are running the team building day for the Year 7s and their tutors at Westhorpe Water Sports Centre in Little Marlow. This team building day has proved to be a fantastic opportunity for Year 7s to mix and make friends with new people and their form tutors away from the school environment, so it has been organised early in the term: for Thursday 21st September.

Inspired Expeditions, the company who runs the expeditions for the Duke of Edinburgh award at GMS, are providing the team challenge activities, which will include field games, as well as land and water based pursuits. All the events have the ultimate aim of building confidence, improving communication, team and leadership skills, through encouraging everyone to have fun while participating. The coach will leave GMS at 9am, after registration and return to school at 3pm.

School uniform will be replaced with more suitable clothes. A list of items needed for the day are as follows:

  • a warm top like a sweatshirt and fleece.
  • a T-shirt
  • tracksuit trousers or shorts-depending on the weather (not jeans)
  • waterproofs
  • old trainers
  • wet shoes or soft-soled shoes (no wellies, flip-flops or crocs)
  • towel
  • sun lotion
  • bin liner (to put wet clothes in)
  • a complete change of clothes, as students may get wet
  • packed lunch, snacks and drinks

In order for the trip to take place, a contribution of £18 per student is required. ParentPay payments are due in by Friday 15th September. This method of payment also provides the school with consent for your son or daughter to attend the trip.
