Year 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 ‘Operation Encounter’, who also facilitate the Year 8 Camp Night for Great Marlow School.

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 Operation Encounter instructors separated the students into groups and informed them of the activities they would be involved in. All students participated in:

  • team challenges
  • a water-based activity: either canoeing or raft building
  • a land-based activity: crate-stacking, bushcraft, low rope course, archery, assault course or the climbing wall

The Year 7s 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.

A great start to the year as a day that all students will remember as an exciting experience, marking the beginning of their time at Great Marlow School.
