ACS Egham students challenge themselves during activities week in Devon

The sun shone brightly as 65 students from ACS Egham International School travelled to North Devon activity centre, Skern Lodge, to take part in an adventure packed seven days. The grade 9 students spent their time at Skern Lodge undertaking a broad range of outdoor activities including surfing, high rope walks, kayaking, tunneling, obstacle courses, climbing, abseiling and swimming. The trip was designed to help the students develop key attributes that form part of the International Baccalaureate Programme, including communication, open-mindedness and inquiry skills. By putting these skills into practice the students were able to see how different personalities can work efficiently and cooperatively to achieve goals. Bill Roach, ACS Egham trip leader, said about the trip: “Being in a relaxing environment surrounded by beautiful views really helped students venture out of their comfort zones and show different skills they didn’t know they had. The best part of the trip for me was seeing the students try all of the adventure activities, become more confident and make new friends along the way. I cannot wait to see how the students apply their new skills to their learning during the coming academic year and beyond.”
