Year 7 CampThe trip was blessed with good weather, which combined with an idyllic venue, made the perfect ingredients for a wonderful first camping experience.
Leaving after school on Friday, we set off in convoy and headed to Cornwall with 5 minibuses full of very excited Year 7's. At camp all students watched a demonstration on how to set up a tent, then organised chaos ensued as students (many of them for the first time ever) tried to replicate this feat. After some corrections the site eventually looked and felt like it was full of camping veterans. All the staff then served a feast of jacket potatoes, cheese and beans.
The evening involved a range of team building games and was finished by roasting marshmallows by the fire.
Slowly the students started thinning out and retired to bed just in time before a big down pour of rain.
With an early start and many tired looking faces there was still time left for a quick wide game once everything had been packed away and loaded on to the van.
I would like to thank all the dedicated staff who contributed to the trip by volunteering their time and effort.
