PGL Trip 2017

IMG_1815

Our PGL trip this year took us to Winmarleigh Hall near Preston for a week of outward bound activities. We had an exciting week, during which the pupils developed their climbing skills, learnt to ride a quad bike, launched
themselves down a zip wire, screamed on the giant swing, built and launched rafts made from barrels and logs, developed their aim in archery, learnt to read a map when orienteering, faced their fears to climb up a telegraph pole to stand on a small platform at the top and
then jump off the platform to touch a ball before being lowered down!

Our evenings were occupied with a campfire, robot wars and our annual favourite, the ambush evening (hide and seek in teams of 20+!); along with table tennis and table football contests.

Throughout the week, the children impressed us with their positivity, resilience, willingness to give all the activities a try, and good humour.

We are already planning our2018 trip, this time to the PGL centre at Caythorpe Court.
