Outward Bound trip takes students to new heights

Outward Bound trip takes students to new heights
Oasis Academy Brightstowe

Trekking up mountains, canoeing down estuaries and camping overnight ... these were some of the exhilarating activities which students took part in on their Outward Bound trip last term.

The students showed great resilience throughout the week and demonstrated Brightstowe’s ‘BRIGHT’ values excellently.

Among the challenges was a trek up Wales' ninth tallest mountain, Cadair Idris where they set up camp for the night.

Mr Dana, who accompanied the students on the trip alongside Mrs Booker, said: “The biggest achievement that all our kids completed was an exceptionally difficult, two-day expedition including a mountain hike and camp. This was no easy feat by any stretch of the imagination.”

Other activities students took part in included a beach run and canoeing down the Dovey Estuary for 8k, which culminated in the students jumping into the sea.  

Mrs Booker and Mr Dana, who accompanied the students on the trip, were extremely proud of the students who demonstrated a real sense of determination, grit and team work.
