Kielder

On Friday 29th April 42 Year 7 children and 5 staff set off to Hawkhirst Scout Centre on Kielder Water for our annual Adventure Weekend. We took part in a very exciting, packed programme of events which included bellboating, sailing, archery, Jacob’s ladder, abseiling, climbing, shelter building, raft building and zip line. The weather was very kind to us this year and, apart from a little too much wind before one of the sailing activities, everything went to schedule. The children were amazing, their team work was a credit to them and one of the best efforts we have ever seen in our thirteen years of doing this trip. We have never had so many children get to the top of Jacob’s Ladder, they were all very brave and determined, constantly being cheered on by their team mates. Many thanks to parents and carers for picking them up promptly and wading through the mountains of wet, dirty washing we brought back. Until next year……
