Sixth Form Team Building Day
On Tuesday, our 173 Year 12 students enjoyed an action packed activity day at Worcester University Lakeside Campus as part of their Induction programme. They tried a variety of activities including raft building and sailing (with varying degrees of success!), jetty jumping, canoeing; some groups also had a go on a climbing tower. As the day went on the students participating in the water based activities also became increasingly adapt at accidentally-on-purpose capsizing and having a swim! The weather had appeared very threatening but remarkably the rain held off.
As well as having a lot of fun, it was good to see the students challenging themselves to try new activities and push themselves physically. The activities were designed to stretch and challenge them and to develop teamwork, leadership and communication skills.
It was a real pleasure to see the students throwing themselves into the different challenges and enjoying themselves; it was also an excellent way for the whole year group to get to know each other better. Our new year 12 busied themselves making new friends, laughing with old friends, working in teams and enjoying each other’s company in different surroundings. A good time was had by all!
