Day 4 On The Year 6 Residential to Baihe

17 April 2014

Year 6 tell us what adventures they had on the last full day of their residential trip...

  • BISS Puxi Year 6 on residential trip
  • BISS Puxi Year 6 on residential

The day began with rain...and cold weather...and grey skies...

Then it brightened up and everything was fine!

We headed off to Via-Feratta - a high octane, high wall wire course with a wonderfully interesting history - that encouraged us to dig deep into our bravery reserves and scale 40m of rock face attached to a cable.  Most of the children and even some of the teachers scaled the dizzy heights.  Those who did were rewarded with an immense feeling of satisfaction and some spectacular views down the valley.  Many of the children and Miss Deane overcame their nerves to complete the course which took around 45 minutes from start to finish. 

We then returned to involve ourselves in more activities including abseiling, team building and orienteering that we had not yet completed in the round robin of activities earlier in the week.  We learned new games from our group leaders and worked well together to complete everything that we could. 

We finished the day with a tasty BBQ and final a thank you to the Terratribes and kitchen staff, then mad four way down the the river bank for a campfire and storytelling. 

We begin our journey back to Shanghai tomorrow with an early 5am rise, safe in the knowledge that we have learnt new things, had amazing experiences and and made lasting relationships with many different people.

See you tomorrow!

- Year 6.
