Monday 5th June saw the Year 9 ASDAN students pack their camping bags and venture into to the wilderness as part of their expedition project. Students had planned their activities, created equipment lists and even practiced how to cook their meals before they set off.

Joined by several selected students as a reward, all students got fully involved and had an amazing time. Taking part in kayaking, archery, climbing, go karts, an assault course with a slip and slide and much more, there was not a moment spare in an action packed day. Even Mr Flynn couldn’t resist sliding down the hill in a once in a lifetime experience.

Night time came and students put up their tents (with a little help) Once this was done it was time for a barbeque cooked around the campfire, finished off with marshmallows and ghost stories in the dark. As students scared each other Mr Flynn put his Drama skills to the test and caused one student to throw his marshmallows in the air in fear. All students settled in for the wettest night on record. Resilience was the skill of the day as some of the tents leaked due to so much rainfall. The rain didn’t stop students though as they got up early the next morning to take part in more activities.

We can’t wait to do it all again on 12th July with our 16 lucky winners, nominated by subject teachers.
