Young adventurers

Pupils at Christ Church Primary in Cressage recently had an outdoor experience to treasure. Almost half the school went to Arthog Outdoor Education Centre in Snowdonia, where the children had a wonderful time gorge walking, canoeing, rock climbing and playing on the beach… despite the cold weather. Seven-year-old Millie-Jane Gardner says, “I loved all of it but especially the canoeing, when we jumped up and down as we sang ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes!’”

Head Tracey Cansdale explains, “Helping children to develop resilience is a big topic at the moment, as parents and schools look to promote good mental health. Being away from home, trying new activities and working with different instructors helps children to see that they can cope well with challenges.”
