The Calvert Trust Residential Visit November 2018
Calvert Trust Residential November 12th – 16th 2018
One a balmy November morning, November 12th, a group of pupils and staff set out for the drive down to Exmoor, Devon to The Calvert Trust. The traffic was favourable to us; we had our usual lunch stop at Swindon services and finally arrived on time at 4pm.
Working in two groups we enjoyed a week of challenges, different experiences and teamwork as well as having fun.
We climbed, abseiled, went on the zip wire and high ropes, rose to the problem solving of the challenge course and work in the forest and had the driest canoeing sessions ever for Team Redway! We also enjoyed a morning out at Woolacombe that was windy but dry.
All pupils and staff worked well as a team and were very supportive of each other. Pupils who had not been away from home before became more confident as the week went along. A special mention has to go to Brenda and her hearing dog Cope; Brenda out of her comfort zones had a go at everything!
We were all very proud at the end of the week – and glad to be home again!
