Outdoor Pursuits

There was archery, cycling, Zorb football and more as the Year Nines at Pleckgate High School enjoyed an outdoor pursuits day.

The day was run by Blackburn company Sporting NRG and the pupils got to try out different team building exercises, skills and sports to find new talents and be encouraged to work together.

They tried their hand at archery and Zorb football but also had to use logisitics, they had to overcome problems and also test themselves in unfamiliar situations.

Pleckgate’s Mr Cadman said: “The aim of the day was to develop team building skills, along with leadership, self management and resilience.

“Pupils experienced a range of activities including archery, mountain biking, bubble football as well as many other team building activities and games.

“The event was a huge success and finished the year off nicely as the pupils prepare to take on their GCSE’s next year.

“Pupils got a lot out of the day and thoroughly enjoyed the new experiences of activities they wouldn’t normally get the chance to try.”
