Once again the indomitable Cumbria trip pupils’ spirit could not be crushed by everything the weather threw at us today.
Another day of mastering archery, problem solving and a trip to the ghylls. Weather meant that the ghylls trip involved scrambling up rather than down – persevering through howling winds and torrential rain to get to stand in a waterfall with a majestic view of Derwent Water. Some very impressive teamwork and bravery were in evidence.
Canoeing was a firm favourite for many- with bravery, gymnast balancing skills and even a cold dip for a few! The climbing wall tested the groups again with Aidan displaying plenty of tenacity and energy.
The other forms enjoyed Roman Day- learning about life as a roman soldier at Hadrian’s Wall, followed by a trip to the wall itself and culminating with an enlightening tour around the archaeological site of Vindolanda.
