Here we are at the end of our fantastic first day at Nanbeihu. We have all had an exciting day doing lots of activities!
After dinner, we went on a night walk to listen to the countryside at night. Without the sound of car horns, we could hear the crickets chirping at the tops of their voices. They were really loud!
“Kayaking was amazing and tiring!” - Lukas Diverchy
“I liked the navigation best because it was fun and we got to learn how to use a compass.” - Alexandra Boukia-Iskov
It is the afternoon of day 2 and we are just heading out to our next activities.
Yellow group are plucking up all of their courage for the leap of faith, it is definitely a tall order! Mr Harriott is cheering from the ground, but will he take up the challenge himself?
A few comments from the Royal Blues and the Oranges:
“All the activities are exciting, but the leap of faith looks the best!” - Joshua Wang
“When you're up there, it seems scary to jump or not jump. But when you jump you feel nothing. Then, when you get down you feel awesome!” - Sawyer Blanchford after completing the leap of faith.
Carlo, a truly acrobatic student, was suspended upside down after somersaulting in mid-air!
“It (the leap of faith) was awesome! When I was upside down, it felt weird because the rope was shorter and I felt like my food was going up and down. It was amazing though. I did the somersault because when I touched the bar I accidentally pushed myself backwards!” - Carlo Delle Monache
Another very successful day at Nanbeihu is now drawing to a close. A full day of activities was followed by a brilliant BBQ. After some tidy up time, Matt led a fantastic night game where teams had to send a 'ninja' to rescue as much treasure as possible in the dark before they got spotted by the spotlight. Much fun was had by all!
Last day tomorrow, but there is lots more fun to be had with the last 2 activities. Miss Rakowski set the standard with the Broken Bridge and with determination etched on their faces, Mrs Westwood and Miss Wong followed suit with their groups. Mr Grimwood had a go at the rock climbing and we are still waiting to hear what the other teachers got up to!
Good night and see you tomorrow!
