Cliveden National Trust
A day of fun was in store for Year 7 boys and girls when they came together for a session of team building and activities at Cliveden National Trust.
Their day started with a walk along the river to boats where a ferry took them across the River Thames to the banks of Cliveden. From there the three groups then ventured off to their activities. The first group went to an art session in the Long Garden with Frances Ackland Snow, art teacher, here they were asked to use their senses to inspire their paintings using water colours.
The second group went to the Chapel where they were met by James Wilding, Academic Principal, who told a story about people who were unfortunately taken from us in the Great War.
The final group were given a pair of secateurs and loppers. They tasked with the job of cutting back a non-native plant that was spreading through the woodlands.
Gareth Miller, Head of Year 7, said:
“The aim of the day was about getting together, making new friends and being able to work together to achieve a common aim. It was a great day and we were blessed with the weather too."
