Boarders have fun Geocaching

Last weekend I stayed in school along with a few friends and the weekend activity was Geocaching. I had some vague idea what geocaching was but was not entirely sure. After finding out that geocaching is where you have to find boxes and cylinders etc. in obscure places and document your name, I was quite interested. So my friends and I went with teachers Sonia Cartwright and Ruth Austen and took a walk around Petersfield to find some nearby geocaches using a map and compass. We only managed to locate one of the three geocaches we targeted; however it was a fun experience! We also went for a walk through Steep Marsh and discovered some areas of interest including a local nature reserve which was only a short walk from school.
