Over a weekend in May, 60 students took part in the Y9 residential trip to Osmington Bay near Weymouth.
The students had a great time over the three days, where they stayed in new accommodation and enjoyed taking part in a variety of activities.
There were lots of memorable moments that the students can treasure. For example, the first challenge was to create something that would protect a water balloon from breaking when dropped from a height. Those that were successful were allowed to aim these at Mr Cooke to help keep him awake. There were also some great moments where students conquered fears and took to the heights. They also had a chance of spending quality time with friends and peers.
Y9 student, Sam Constable said, “The Osmington Bay trip was very enjoyable because there were so many activities in the two and a bit days we were there. We played dodgeball, built rafts, abseiled, climbed Jacobs ladder, dragon boated, learnt survival skills and walked along the beach. The food was good and the staff were great.”
Overall, all the students had a great time and I hope they will remember their Y9 residential trip for many years. A big thank you to the staff that helped on the trip including Mrs Morris, Mrs Glaze, Mrs Knight, Miss Shevlin, Mr Cooke, Mr Martin and Mr Bellows.
