The entire yeargroup recently embarked on a series of exciting F1 Outdoor Experience Days at Glen Esk, Clatto Country Park and the Arbroath Cliffs.

Across the locations, over three consecutive days, the youngsters were able to try their hand at hill walking and gorge walking, outdoor survival skills like shelter building and fire starting (the marshmallows went down a treat!), as well as wall climbing, mountain biking, archery, orienteering and coasteering.

But that wasn’t all! The pupils also took part in a mini Highland Games, consisting of caber tossing, welly wanging, archery, haggis and spoon racing, and more!

The aim of the three days was to develop teamwork, to enable the pupils to have fun together, and to allow them to get to know the pupils and guidance staff in not just their school houses, but also the rest of the yeargroup.

Nigel Clarke, Deputy Head (Pastoral), said, “This experience is an important part of our induction process for the F1s. It allows them to be challenged in safe environments and to bond with their peers whilst experiencing some exciting challenges.

“The pupils really enjoyed themselves and hopefully got to know each other a little better in the process.”
