60 Year 7 pupils and 7 worn out and weathered Teachers have recently returned from a fun filled week in Dalguise, Scotland. The annual trip is an action packed activity week in the great outdoors just outside of Perthshire. Pupils had the chance to gain new experiences including ‘the giant swing’, zip wires, climbing, abseiling, raft building, archery and much more with specialist instructors. The trip gave pupils in year 7 a chance to get to know each other outside of the classroom and to challenge themselves by taking them out of their comfort zone. The pupils were a credit to our school.
Throughout the week pupils surprised themselves with their bravery; climbing higher than they ever thought they could and pushing themselves in a range of different feats. The trip also showed how supportive of each other the pupils at St John Fishers can be with screams and shouts of encouragement and congratulations throughout the week. Evening activities included camp fire songs and games with pupils in full voice. Voices which seemed to desert some pupils by the end of the week after all the shouting and excitement. A great week was had by all and big congratulations should go to all the pupils who took part for their effort, behaviour and courage to push themselves. Well done.
