Celebration of Yr 7 Activity Day

Following an enjoyable and successful Activity Day last year, this year’s new intake were excited to be involved in the team-building activity at Westhorpe Water Sports Centre in Little Marlow – headquarters of Inspired Expeditions who run Great Marlow School’s DofE expeditions and the Year 8 Camp Night.

On Friday 28th September, the entire Year 7 year group, plus their form tutors set off from school by coach, heading to Westhorpe for a day of activities designed to develop their communication, team and leadership skills.

The excited students were looking forward to a fantastic opportunity to get to know each other and their form tutors away from the school environment. On arrival, the Inspired Expedition instructors separated the students into groups and informed them which activities they would be involved in. All students participated in:

* A water-based activity: either canoeing or kayaking,

* A land-based activity: crate-stacking, bushcraft, slack-lining, assault course or the climbing wall

* Team challenges

The Year 7 pupils enthusiastically involved themselves in every task and the activity leaders were impressed by both their behaviour throughout the day and their eagerness to participate in the various challenges.

This proved to be a great start for Year 7: a day that all the students will remember for a long time as as a fun and exciting experience, marking the beginning of their time at Great Marlow School.
