It looks like snow!

Some of our KS4 students on Orange pathway have recently started four weeks of tobogganing sessions to count towards their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Skills section.

The students had to wrap up in thermal layers and needed helmets and gloves in order to take part in the session. After a safety briefing from the snow instructors, students were allowed to start the activity.

Students were responsible for carrying their own equipment up two icy floors and placing their toboggan at the top of the ramp. Students had to wait for instructors to say it was safe to go and give them the green light to go!.

All the students are excited to be making progress for their DoE Bronze and for the next few weeks of activities before the half term break.

 

Thank you, and God bless you for all the work you have done with my son. It feels like I have my son back.
