School camp is a week to remember

YEAR 6 pupils from Mangotsfield C of E Primary School had a week to remember when they set off for their first school camp.

A group of 80 children from the school in Emersons Green tried a variety of activities from gorge scrambling and cycling to archery and rope walking at Adventure Okehampton in Devon, finishing with a disco DJed by teacher Ed Crawford.

Assistant head teacher Sam Peplow said: "Our learners showed incredible bravery throughout the week: they pushed themselves to their limits with the adventurous activities on offer and showed their independence spending a week away from home.

"It was a brilliant way to end the year, and a huge thanks must go to the staff team who gave up time to accompany the children."
