Getting active with range of outdoor pursuits

This term saw the start of a new activity programme offering a variety of outdoor pursuits. Eight students have been enjoying climbing at High Sports in Alton, kayaking in Chichester Harbour based at Cobnor Activities Centre, and mountain biking in the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, also run by instructors from Cobnor and using bikes provided by them. The group of Block 3 and 4 students, a mixture of beginners and improvers, include Josh Mazas who said ‘This fantastic activity is a great opportunity to get outside and get active.  You end up looking forward to it every week.  It’s very energetic, but it’s still suitable for all abilities and everyone is challenged at their own level.’ View photos.
