Twenty-Four students from the Mary Hare School in Newbury embarked on an adventure this week to take part in an exciting Multi-Activity Programme, as well as undertaking the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Practice Expedition.

With a multitude of adventurous activities planned in the local area, the group were tasked with a variety of different challenges, from building and paddling the infamous Cardboard Boat to climbing artificial rock faces and hitting the centre gold with a bow and arrow.

As part of the programme, the group successfully completed the relevant training for the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award before undertaking the Open Canoeing Practice Expedition along the Kennet and Avon Canal.

Robin Askew, a teacher from Mary Hare School said “Consideration was given to the sensory and physical needs of the participants in the planning stage and needs were adapted to during the week.  The staff actively engaged with pupils to encourage their development and ensure everyone achieved their potential and enjoyed the week.”
