Year 7 PGL Trip

On Friday 7th June, 110 students and 13 teachers made their way to Osmington Bay PGL for our annual Year 7 trip. We had a weekend of fun but challenging activities ahead of us. Dragon Boating at Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy was fun and involved the pupils having to remember all the commands and what they meant ranging from 'Naughty water' to 'Easy, easy, easy'. 
Other activities included a Giant Swing, Orienteering, Problem Solving, Survival Skills, Quad Biking, Climbing, Tunnel Trail and Jacob's Ladder. 

Quad Biking Jacob's Ladder

It was fantastic to see so many students overcome personal challenges and develop in confidence. They all became 10% braver and embodied the Aureus values of Courage, Resilience, Kindness, Empathy, Respect and Responsibility. They were encouraging each other and congratulating each other during each task. 

Giant Swing Dragon Boating

A truly lovely but exhausting weekend! Some of our students have shared their experiences below:
"Our PGL trip was amazing and I loved all of the activities. I got really wet on the Dragon Boating but my favourite activity was the tunnel trail as I was able to fit in all the holes even the tiny ones!" Bella, Year 7
"The PGL trip was SO FUN!! My favourite activity was the climbing wall because I overcame my fear of heights. I also overcame my fear of the sea due to Dragon Boating." Emily, Year 7
"Our PGL trip was sooo fun, we played and had fun with our activities. I loved the tunnelling the most. We had so much fun and it was an amazing educational experience." Kaleb, Year 7
