Year 7

Group 1
Today was the day that group 1 tackled the mighty karst mountains of Guangxi province! Pupils zip lined across the mouth of a cave before abseiling 28 metres down the face of the mountain. We then scaled Cheese Mountain with pupils taking two different routes. The rest of the group was always there to support and encourage their fellow adventurers.

Group 2
Today we moved from the Snow Lion Resort to Dahebei Village. This morning we have been hiking and we are heading to this afternoon’s activity of farm work before the bonfire later on tonight.

Year 8

Group 1
Today Group 1 had a great time sand-sliding, going on a camel ride and doing an orienteering activity in the desert. We are now heading to where we begin our hike to the campsite where we will set up the tents and cook our own dinner. Everyone is sandy but happy!

Group 2
We arrived to our Mongolian yurts at around 6pm last night, and were welcomed by the locals with a traditional ceremony and feast. Today, we have been completing exciting activities on site, such as cooking, archery and wrestling. Tonight, we will be having a barbeque and, if the weather holds out, a campfire with traditional mongolian songs! The scenery is beautiful here, and all we can see for miles around are the grasslands.

Year 9

Group 1
Group 1 spent yesterday evening in an authentic Chinese farming village. The village was nestled in a valley beneath the Great Wall, which was illuminated atop the dramatic craggy peaks. It was an incredible setting for an outdoor dinner of home-cooked cuisine, including Mrs Liu's legendary Gong Bao Chicken. The students were made very welcome by the local families and were fascinated by the local culture and customs.

This morning, we climbed steeply up the hillside to meet the Great Wall and after pausing to catch our breath set off on a majestic undulating hike along the wall. It was unquestionably challenging. Some sections were very steep but our students did us proud and met the challenge head-on. Their perseverance and consideration for each other was outstanding. Even the hawkers who followed our group at times were cheered by our friendly camaraderie.

Feeling tired but in high spirits after arriving at our destination, we descended to enjoy a well-earned lunch, followed by ice creams provided by our host. We are now making our way to another village where we will take part in a scavenger hunt. The adventure continues.

Group 2
Students were at the Beijing Olympic park doing sailing activities today and tonight we slept in old farm houses.

Year 12

The whole of year 12 are now at the camp getting involved in a variety of conservation projects including planting trees and building work. They are working hard in the sun.
