During the summer break, a group of senior pupils travelled to Cornwall to take part in the school’s first health and wellbeing trip. The Surf and Fitness Camp focused on advancing physical and mental strength and resilience through the introduction of new skills and the progression of current skills.
The week was packed full of activities. The group had daily surf lessons, completed regular circuits, workouts and roller sessions and even tried coasteering, which involved swimming, rock climbing and cliff jumping!
They were encouraged and supported to go outside their comfort zone daily with activities aimed at developing them physically, mentally and socially. Self-reflection and physical activity were key to the experience and pupils enjoyed being ‘offline’ for the majority of the trip.
Evenings were spent playing team building games, going on adventures into Truro and visiting the cinema and bowling alley.
PE teacher, Mr Dunlop, who led the trip said:
Overall, the feedback from pupils was excellent. The group was fantastic, and we were so impressed with how all the pupils took on new challenges and really supported each other through some of the more onerous activities. They clearly took a lot from the trip and I know the majority of them would like the chance to do it again next summer.
