Year Eight Residentials 2016

Friday 30th September 2016 saw the conclusion of three week’s worth of residential visits, by each of Grosvenor’s six Year Eight tutor groups, to ‘Delamont Outdoor Education Centre’, on the shores of Strangford Lough.

The residentials, which saw a total of eighteen members of staff attend along with some 155 pupils, provided those in attendance with the opportunity to participate in a range of outdoor activities such as: bouldering, cliff jumping, canoeing and adventure walks, as well as some indoor activities such as archery and rock climbing.

Without a doubt the trips proved both highly worthwhile and popular, whilst also offering the perfect opportunity for pupils within Year Eight to bond as they got to know their peers better through the range of activities on offer.

Many thanks to the Education Centre’s expert instructors who helped to deliver the activities in an enjoyable but safe manner, as well as the Grosvenor staff members whose attendance also made the trips possible – the School looks forward to taking an entire new set of Year Eight pupils to participate in these activities again next year.
