Activities organised and run by the Army North West Outreach Team helped pupils in Year 10 to develop their teamwork, communication, problem solving, leadership skills and resilience.

The boys were challenged to get their team across three block using two planks that were shorter than the gaps, recover equipment from the centre of a ‘minefield’, transport a stretcher full of equipment across a ‘pond’, guide a teammate through a ‘minefield’, and several more perplexing tasks. Each team rose to the occasion, working together to figure out the best approach and hopefully the solution as they worked their way through the carousel of activities.

This valuable day was not only enjoyable, but also helped the whole of Year 10 to develop a wide range of transferrable skills.
