Year 7 Bonding Trips

Last week saw our newest generation of young Foresters at the Senior School embark on a day of team bonding at the Hertfordshire Young Mariners’ Base.

Accompanied by Year 7 tutors and Ms. Lechmere-Smith, Head of Lower School, our Year 7 pupils participated in an array of activities, ranging from Stand-Up paddle boarding and canoeing to caving, archery, fencing and climbing! Needless-to-say, a great day was had by all, from attempting headstands on paddle boards (and inevitably falling in the water thereafter!) to wriggling backwards through an underground cave with helmet lights off, hitting bulls-eyes, reaching new heights on the climbing wall, power paddling and practising a ferocious ‘On Guard!’ stance whilst fencing!

Moreover, the pupils were a real credit to Forest, and brilliant ambassadors for their School. Indeed, a wonderful time was had by all- perfectly encapsulated in the words of one Year 7 boy: ‘Miss! This is the BEST. DAY. EVER!’. I’m sure you’ll agree that you can’t ask for much more than that! Well done Year 7 on a great day out and an active start to your Forest journey!
