ST MARK’S Year 12 pupils attended the Nuclear Wild Forest for a team building day towards the end of last half term.
This was their final induction into the Sixth Form at St Mark’s, it was a great way to celebrate their great transition from Key Stage 4 to Key Stage 5.
Pupils had to overcome challenges, work as a team and develop their resilience in different environmental conditions.
Assistant Head, Emily Webster said: “Our pupils were a credit to the school. They took on every element of the course and most of them were surprised by their physical capabilities and mental toughness.
“It was lovely to see them out of the school environment and in the countryside”.
‘I have never done anything like this before I am not particularly sporty but, I am going to sign up for the 5k event’ – Luca.
Pupils were out on the course for two hours and were constantly on the move, it was a great test to see how they could problem solve and ensure everyone was supported in their group.
“I learnt so much on the team building day such as when presented with a problem it requires a collaborative effort and brings unity. Healthy competition is a fun too! – Daniel.
A massive well done to the Year 12 pupils and thank you to the Nuclear Wild Forest Team for making St Mark’s so welcome, we will definitely be back next year.
I absolutely loved it!- Eddy.
