On Sunday 5th November and Monday 6th November, 75 Year 7 students descended on the Team Falcon sports field for what was an action packed and fun filled two days of activities. On Sunday evening students camped out overnight on our school field playing team games, having s'mores and singing songs around the campfire getting to know their peers.
Day two started early with breakfast and then straight into the first activity of the day. The four activities students participated in developed a range of different skills as well as challenging them both physically and mentally. These activities included raft building, personal survival, Trebuchet and the most challenging of all.......The Abseil!!!
As year leader it was great for me to see students mingling and getting to know their peers from other classes and as one student put it "making new friends" which is a huge part of school life. A special mention must go to Mr Wales for organising it alongside Northstar as well as Mr Collinson, Mr Maughan and Mrs Grange who braved camping and gave up their time to look after all of our students.
