On 7th March 2019, a group of our KS3 secondary pupils had the opportunity to participate in kayaking and paddle board activities. The activities are designed for enquiring minds and active bodies with the emphasis of creating a passion for quality time spent outdoors, reinforcing important water safety messages and delivering relevant curriculum aims and objectives that support in-school learning.


The activities involved intellectual and physical challenges to encourage the pupils to work as a team, build on trust and develop their skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group.

Everyone had an excellent time; the pupils worked as a team and they all enjoyed making sure Mr Townend and Mrs Warren ended up in the water…on numerous occasions!

Unfortunately, we did not have a waterproof camera, therefore, we were limited to photos before the activities. When we return with our year 11 pupils next week, we are going to try to get action photos and videos…WATCH THIS SPACE!
