A day of team building, physical effort and fun was had by all Year 12 as an ice-breaker at the start of the new school year.
The girls – who like Year 6 were the first to bring together students from Red Maids’ and Redland High into one year group – spent a day at the Redwood Outdoor Centre in Gloucester.
Our Sixth Form also attracts new joiners from various other Bristol schools so the event serves an important but enjoyable purpose of helping the girls to get to know each other in a different environment.
The students threw themselves into a range of activities including raft building, orienteering and cooking their lunch over an open fire.
Their inventive cooking skills were particularly impressive – among other things they produced mini pizzas, herby potato wedges, ratatouille, flat breads and chocolate bananas – all from very basic ingredients and cooked over fire pits they had dug and lit themselves.
A fun start to the new school year.
