Twelve adventurous pupils from years 4 to 8 spent the weekend at Bewerley Park, an outdoor education centre near Pateley Bridge. They spent their time problem solving, team building, rock scrambling, throwing themselves from a 8 metre pole to a trapeze, raft building, walking and learning about bush craft. The pupils proved themselves to be extremely courageous and very daring; indeed the instructor was delighted that they “…..listened so well and were up for anything!”
