WPCA - ABL/Low Ropes/High Ropes Course

The sun was shining and there was excitement in the air as the Year 7 & 8's arrived at school, (except for Zac & Grace, who'd forgotten all about it), we were heading to The Groynes for a day of challenging ourselves in a range of activities with the Horizons Adventure Team. And we couldn't wait!

There was so much to take in when we got there - grass, roads, missing cars (opps - some got a little lost) and some very high poles with lots of ropes. 

We meet the team and then got into the day. To keep it brief it was games, games, challenges, games, food & drink, challenges, low ropes, games, high ropes, reflection and then back to school.

And our young people were just fantastic. No one cried, everyone gave everything their best and all showed their Hero Values at each moment of the day. We saw team work, determination, problem solving, encouragement and fun. It really was the perfect day. Here are a few photos. More will be found on individual blogs in the next few days.

  1. How wonderful to see everyone rising to the challenge. (Get it!) I must admit that I am not a fan of heights but I know that many people find climbing to be exhilarating. It is great to read that everyone worked together positively and that our YMS HERO values came to the fore.

    I look forward to hearing about your next challenge.

  6. Hello Rimu Class at Yaldhurst, I'm Nika from St Bernadette's Primary School. I liked how you said that Zac and Grace forgot all about the challenge. You could maybe improve on adding what your doing in the photos like on the last one did anyone climb to the top? Are you the only class that came or does your school do this every year?

    I really liked your pictures for the high ropes course it looks like a lot of fun. What was your favourite part about it? We have a high ropes course near our school but I haven't been to it but the last year 8s went and they said it was so much fun.
