On September 13th 2012, 22 students and 4 teachers went to an activity centre in the South of England. There was a range of activities available everyday from swinging off a giant swing to mountain biking and archery. All of the activities required a high level of communication and teamwork. Our students involved themselves in every activity and worked well together. They were inclusive of all members of the group and the teachers took part also.
The students were taken to Stratford upon Avon to see a leading poet called Benjamin Zepheniah. The poems contained messages of peace and had political slants that were relevant to our students.
A trip to the London museums created interest and excitement among the students. They were taken to the Natural History Museum and The Science Museum. Some students were taken to the Victoria and Albert Museum also.
Of course a trip abroad is never complete without the shopping. The students were taken to two shopping centers and managed to buy almost everything. A great boost to the UK economy!!
In the evenings the students were allowed to have their own recreation time along with planned activities like space hopper football, watching movies in the theatre and a football competition between our students and the PGL staff.
This trip was a great and positive experience for staff and students. The BSA group was told that we have been the best group to be accommodated at PGL. Our students carried themselves with confidence and respect. They never failed to take part in any activities and got along positively with each other. The students were a credit to the BSA.
