Where there’s a will, there’s a way! In normal times at the beginning of term, Year 7 spend time away from home at the PGL activity centre taking part in various activities and bonding as a year group. Instead, our amazing 21-acre site was transformed into a 3-day team building extravaganza. Campfires instead of sleepovers, from indoor kayaking to archery, it was a whirlwind of activities as the girls spent time getting to know each other and having fun.
A special mention goes to Ms Miller, who created the most amazing immersive experience for the girls alongside our brilliant hosts, Skern Lodge.
My favourite thing about the team-building event was meeting and chatting to girls and also doing pool kayaking, QR code ‘who dunnit’, campcraft and archery!
I loved the bonfire because I really liked singing the songs and listening to stories around the warm fire. I also made a few friends who I wouldn’t have got to know if we hadn’t had the bonfire.
Even with the virus you were able to let us have a great time with all the activities. My favourite thing about the team-building event is that it is all about teamwork which helped me make a few new friends. I liked two activities the most: archery as Rob (my teacher) was very funny and the organisation challenge. I also liked kayaking in the pool.
