Last Monday, 95 lower sixth students and the sixth form team travelled to Box Hill in Surrey for a day of team-building.
Students spent time on a challenge course, solving varied problems ranging from weight distribution on a giant seesaw, to how to fit nine people through a tyre inner tube in the fastest possible time. Elsewhere on the beautiful, sun-blessed site, students ascended, jumped off and fell from some ludicrously high rope structures. Thank goodness for those oh so comfortable and flattering harnesses!
Fears were faced, words of support and encouragement always offered and a great deal about team work and leadership skills were learnt.
