Chetham’s goes kayaking

Last weekend, Chetham’s students headed for the water on the first of many activity trips organised by the recreation team. 

Middle school student Shamimu tells the story:


“We set off for the Debdale Outdoor Centre with Middle school and a few Sixth Formers. The best bit of the trip was when we all got a have a go on the instructor’s speed boat and jumped off afterwards. I also enjoyed the exercise when we would kayak to a certain point and then gradually get further into the river.

“I found it difficult at first but after a while I got used to it, it helped that we had lots of breaks when we jumped into the water. I would DEFINITELY go again as it was really fun! At the Debdale Centre I’ve been windsurfing, raft building and cycling. I think that going on a Sunday helps me know that I’ve had my fun at the weekend and makes me work harder in the week, and helps me calm down before another week starts. In the past three years I’ve also also been Indoor Sky diving, snowboarding and horse riding with Chetham’s.”


Thanks to Tammy for sharing her photo from the day, and to Mrs Staszko for organising an inspiring programme of Sunday trips for students across the School.
