Twenty-four very tired children returned today from a fabulous week at the Outward Bound Centre in Aberdovey. They had an amazing time taking part in a whole series of adventurous activities, through which they were encouraged to develop a whole host of life-long skills, including resilience, determination, and self-confidence. They were challenged to step outside of their comfort zone and to learn how to calculate and take risks within a supported environment. Throughout the week, it was fantastic to see them grow in independence, confidence and stature, and to talk about how the experiences had changed them. At the end of the course, they created their own short videos, talking about the impact that the experience had had on them and how they could use they skills they had learnt back at school and in their futures.
A huge thank you to Bridgestone UK for sponsoring us and providing three staff to come along and support!
