Harrow Way Community School Year 7 and 8 students have been at one with nature ‘Exploring Outdoors’ with Andover Leisure at Charlton Lakes. No fossils fuels were wasted as these students learned the seven essentials of survival in the great outdoors as part of an end of term, motivational and team building day.
Lynne Askey, Harrow Way teacher said: “Being able to start a fire from scratch is quite a feat so the students were rightly pleased with this achievement. They particularly enjoyed toasting marshmallows over the embers but have been duly informed that this talent does not fall under one of the seven essential survival skills! Working as a team was a huge confidence booster although we hope they never need to genuinely survive the great outdoors they are now, at least, equipped to do so.”
