Year 7 Residential 2023

Year 7 recently embarked on their week-long residential in Gopeng which was supplied by Nomad Adventures. After a 7-hour bus journey, pupils arrived at camp with excitement about the week ahead of them. New surroundings and dorm mates became the norm alongside an action-packed week of activities with time spent in the evening reflecting on effort and achievement. 

Throughout the week, pupils admirably took the task of the variety of activities that were set out for us. This included water safety training and mild water rafting in preparation for white water rafting at the start of the week. Following this, pupils moved on to caving, abseiling down a waterfall, high ropes, and climbing walls before finishing the week’s activities with mountain school, a series of tree-high challenges that included the leap of faith, rock climbing and zip lining. 

The week finished with an impromptu disco night where the pupils were able to celebrate their achievements before the early start the following morning and the long drive home. We look forward to positively reflecting on all of our pupils  involvement with an opportunity to learn more about their character and I am sure that they will fondly remember the experience for years to come. 

My thanks to Nomad Adventures for their expertise and the Year 7 team.

Pupil Reflections 

My favourite part was definitely the white water rafting or the abseiling down the waterfall because it really pushed me to do something I would never have done otherwise. I have made some very amazing memories and wish it never ended. – Daisy 

I found the residential really exciting because there were lots of tasks to do and fun activities that everyone could enjoy. Waterfall abseiling was very scary and thrilling, but when I reached the bottom, I was so proud of myself and now I even want to do it again. – Reiji  

The residential trip was filled with fun and exciting activities that allowed us to explore our creativity, think outside the box, and build relationships. The activities included team-building games and outdoor activities. It was a great opportunity for us to bond and create memories that will last a lifetime. – Chanu
