that your Year 9’s were the best by far. Although younger than other groups they performed to a higher standard. Their map reading skills, countryside awareness and care for the environment were exemplary. Once on the camp site they bonded as a group and quickly performed all the tasks, taking time to help each other. I was most impressed by the way they supported a youngster with a painful knee, making sure that he was Ok, chatting to keep his spirits up and never leaving him behind. I found that they treated me with respect and friendliness which made it a pleasure to be with them. These youngsters are truly a credit to themselves, their parents, teachers and the school. They have embraced the ethos of the school and are valuing and making the most of the experiences you offer.
