5th October 2010
Enrichment Day actually turned out to be an enrichment residential visit for the entire Year 7 who travelled to Cowes on the Isle of Wight to spend three days at the United Kingdom Sailing Academy.
The focus was on learning, and each activity they undertook had a team element which gave them an opportunity to bond with their new form groups. The students were given a flavour of sea survival techniques in the pool, a chance to sail in keelboats and to paddle up the river Medina. They learnt how to understand night navigation techniques and enjoy the academy's legendary breakfast!
It was a very enjoyable visit for all concerned and the students are to be congratulated for their efforts in every activity.
