She nonchalantly mentioned this only when questioned 'oh yes, I did that on Wednesday'. Miss Harding and Mr Grimwood have done it in the past, but have politely declined this year. Miss Harding did go over the ‘broken bridge’ though.
Otto Herlevi led team Navy Blue in their bid to move forward on the longest ‘ski planks’ we have ever seen. After marching on the spot with military precision for a while (causing much hilarity amongst the competitors), he managed to rally the troops to move forward as required.
Meanwhile, team Royal Blue are rock climbing. Much fun is being had by all, especially with the breaking news that Mrs Westwood has, once again, managed to agree to participate in an activity which fills her with abject fear! There is definite coercion in the air!
Simon is teaching figure of eight knots so that we can tie our own ropes. Lia has a great example, and is now taking over from Simon, showing us how it's done!
Well, Year 5 are all back safe and sound from their epic adventures. Our final day did not disappoint as we completed our final activities. Ms Jess showed that she too was prepared to take to the high ropes and became the next to complete both the 'broken bridge' and the 'leap of faith'. After a final lunch, we all partook in birthday cake to celebrate Julian's birthday before heading back to Shanghai. We were greeted by a plethora of proud parents before we all headed home.
Thanks to all of the staff and students for such a fabulous trip!
- Mrs Westwood, Year 5 Leader
