PGL Trip 2017
At the end of February students from Year 9 and 10 enjoyed an action packed weekend at Boreatton Park PGL in Shrewsbury. Arriving on Friday evening they soon gathered around the campfires to toast marshmallows. The next morning the students were set the challenge of engineering rafts to take on to the lake. With four teams the competition during the raft races became very competitive and splashing the opposition to slow them down was the most widely used tactic. Back on dry land students were soon zooming through the woodland in a zip wire after learning how to survive in the forest by building shelters and making fires. On their final day the students tested their sporting skills in fencing and archery sessions, followed by racing each other around the track on quad bikes before attempting the giant swing of faith. It was a great weekend and students had a fantastic time whilst being great ambassadors for the school.
