Year 7 Take on the Team Building Challenge
21 October 2016
On Wednesday 5 October, 81 Year 7 students and the Year 7 Pastoral Team headed out to the Kingswood Centre in Staffordshire on the annual Year 7 residential trip. This three day trip aims to aid the girls’ transition to secondary school, with a focus on participation in team-building activities and developing friendships.
Activities included a rope course, abseiling, climbing, nightline challenge and a scrapheap challenge and the girls enjoyed all the adventurous activities and the sunshine! Many girls commented that the highlight of the trip was their evening spent round the camp fire with hot chocolate and marshmallows, singing traditional camp fire songs and playing games.
All of the girls displayed true EHS spirit and they received many compliments from centre staff on their behaviour, politeness and attitude.
Thank you to all the girls for fully engaging in the trip and to the staff for giving their time to attend.
