Outward Bound Year 6 Day 2
Dear Parents and Carers,
It has been another busy day at Outward Bound. Mrs Sengupta reports that the weather has remained lovely and sunny.
The gorge walking was a big success and I’m told, a huge challenge. Apparently the children’s legs were “like jelly” afterwards!
1 group completed their canoe journey and another took a steam boat ride across the lake before scrambling up a mountain.
Another group began the day with orienteering before heading out on expedition. They are due back into the centre later this morning.
The other expedition group began the day with a canoe journey across the lake followed by a climb and then the camp out. They are also due back into centre later this morning.
Mrs McKenzie sent me a photograph of the mountain she climbed with her group and said that it had been a huge achievement for all the children and herself.
The groups that were in the centre last night completed trapeze, line walking and kit preparation for their own expedition.
Dinner was a hearty chilli or pizza with rice, vegetables, fruit, custard and yogurts. There has also been the usual abundance of hot chocolate and a cheeky biscuit or two.
The children are all well and there has been careful inspections of toothbrushes morning and evening.
I will be sure to keep in touch with the staff team throughout today and email you tomorrow morning.
