The 8th annual Dame Elizabeth Cadbury School Mathematics adventure trip to Wales took place this week. 80 students and 8 staff made the 4 hour trip to Manorbier on the Pembrokeshire coast for 4 days of adrenalin packed activities. Accomodation varied from land pods, bell tents, glamping pods and indoor dormitories. Pupils and staff enjoyed coasteering, body boarding, rock climbing, bush-craft and archery, even torrential rain did not dampen the fun!
Students got to spend time on the beach and enjoyed swimming in the sea. On Wednesday evening, pupils were shuttled to Tenby to embark the famous Caldey Island boat tour where they saw seals, puffins and other marine life. Pupils were then given free time to try local delicacies including fresh fish and chips and homemade ice-cream.
Pupils battled it out on our quiz night, which involved five round of questions and a dance off! The evening was then topped off by a big game of football and traditional toasting of marshmellows.
Well done to all pupils and staff for a fun-packed and courageous few days; everyone really pushed themselves outside of their comfort zones. A real highlight was when Harry T was presented with the overall award for effort and offered two weeks of work experience with Clive and his team next year!
