60 students from year 7 spent the day in Holmbury St Mary Surrey Hills, part of South Downs National Park. The focus of the trip is to support individuals with team building skills and build confidence through caring for nature.
The students had the opportunity to contrast between the hustle and bustle of the city and the calm and freshness of the countryside. The activities helped them develop skills to work as individuals and part of a team.
"I enjoyed climbing up the steep hill and jumping into mud!" Tanvir (7A) remarked about the day.
Another student said, "The inner-peace that nature gives is an unbelievable sensation!" Sarah 7L.
We had a wonderful day experiencing nature, and appreciating and learning how to take care of nature through sustainability.
