Year 8 Residential trip-Update from Ms. Arnold

05 November 2014

Please see thoughts & comments from Ms. Heidi Arnold, Head of Year 8, after her trip with Year 8 students to Yangshuo.

As most Year 8 parents know, the residential is my favourite part of the academic year and this was no exception.

We had a fantastic time in Yangshuo, camping, climbing, abseiling, cooking and much more. I learnt to ride a bike – much to the amusement of the year group. All students had a go at abseiling and so did most teachers.

It can be easy to wonder what the value of these trips is, but for me they are priceless. A chance to get to know students in a different environment, the opportunity to make new friends and try new things, but most importantly, they offer students the chance to show how much they have matured.

I was so proud of each student for their behaviour and attitude on the trip, they were an absolute delight to travel with.
