YEAR SEVEN BUSHCRAFT WEEKEND

The weekend of September 15th 2017, a group of Year 7 students enjoyed a weekend of survival in Hatfield Woods.  Building campfires, camouflage, developing their first aid skills and learning how to survive in wooded area with limited resources, were all skills enhanced during the weekend.  This year, the ‘eat a fish eye challenge’ was accepted by six hardy young men and women, who have truly earned their ‘Ray Mears’ survival skills badge.  Our three days developed communication skills, resilience and teamwork and friendships made will hopefully develop throughout the year.  By the end of the weekend it resembled a scene from ‘Lord of the Flies’, as young men and women emerged from the woods,  their characters tested and their hand crafted tents pegs and para-cord bracelets in hand, ready to face all that Year 7 will throw at them.
