On Wednesday 5th February, Prep School students had the opportunity to try an activity that is not part of the curriculum, therefore broadening their experiences and enjoyment of all that life has to offer, and to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
On Wednesday, 40 prep school pupils took on the challenge of the outdoor, 1km long, obstacle course at The Playground. The pupils climbed 10ft high walls, climbed ropes, swung on monkey bars, ran up vertical slides, crawled under cargo nets and enjoyed the finale of “the trenches”; a muddy, 8ft drop into waist-high muddy water!
All pupils were thoroughly wet through, a lot dirtier than they were at the start, but very pleased with themselves.
A great afternoon, enjoyed by all. A fantastic way to learn about team work, resilience and experiencing new challenges!
Several children travelled to Nowton Park to complete the Orienteering Challenge master-minded by Mr Loveday! Teams competed to scavenge for letter clues to reveal the mystery words, using local landmarks. It all came down to the final clue with Alice and Teddy just clinching the win!
Barrow Hall Stables
What an afternoon! Nine South Lee Students travelled to Barrow Hall Stables as part of their sporting enrichment programme.
The more experienced riders (Hester, Darcey, Pip and Henrietta) enjoyed a lesson with Faye where they progressed on to cantering and trot poles in the outdoor school.
The group that were new to riding included Aimee, Elli, Daisy, Arlo and Lottie. They worked hard in the indoor school, with a lot of laughter happening!!
We finished the session with a delicious hot chocolate and squirty cream (Thanks to Mr Gary).
