Bracken Hill students have just returned from what must be the wettest expedition in history!
They covered the 2 day walk in record time and have all now passed their award.
The students still camped and cooked their own meals.
We're really proud of the determination and effort shown by this group and wish them every success if they choose to pursue further DofE training.
Wednesday lesson 2 has become an intervention session for each of the classes on a rotation. Bracken Hill is hoping to encourage more physical activity with inter class competitions in games like basketball, dodgeball and benchball, as well as more intra class events like climbing and balancing activities.
The Daily Mile is being completed by most classes three times each week at the moment. Students are walking / jogging and running around the school field and astro for 15 minutes each time. This seems to have settled nicely into the school routine and pupils are already seeing improvements in how far they are moving during each session.
