PRIMARY school children are getting prepared for their first residential school trip.
Cooks Spinney Primary Academy, in Harlow, is giving 70 pupils the opportunity to experience a three-day adventure to Kingswood today (Wed).
The Year 6 pupils will take part in a range of physical activities during their stay.
Neil Stirrat, headteacher, said: “This is the first residential trip we have taken pupils on in many years. We are hoping to now provide this opportunity every year.
“For a lot of children, this will be their first time staying away from home. Trips like this build independence and bring the pupils out of their shells. They will take part in lots of team-building activities and there will be a big team focus to encourage the children to work together. They will overcome fears to succeed.
“It is really exciting.”
