Throughout Year 7 we have been encouraged to be resilient. We have to had to do challenges from a booklet and set ourselves goals which have really tested our resilience and improved it. Some of us didn't know what resilience was and others thought it would be easier to give up. But soon we all had a pretty good idea on how to keep on going.
The final test was to go on the residential trip: a whole night and two days away from home doing activities outside of our comfort zone. However, the experience on was one that we shall always remember.
We had forest walks where we did a challenging rope obstacle course, a real campfire where we burned our marshmallows, stayed up mainly all night and took part in two new adventurous activities: Zorbing and Go-Carting.
The whole experience improved our team work skills and confidence. We also made new friends from outside our form groups. Whilst having lots of fun, we learned the important lesson of what it means to be resilient.
