End of Year Activities Week

Activities Week was an ambitious, enriching, action-packed programme of stimulating trips, expeditions, workshops and challenges for pupils from Year 7 to the Sixth Form, rounding off the academic year at St Benedict's.

D of E expeditions, and CCF leadership courses ran concurrently throughout the week, while the Lower Sixth 'Last Survivors' philosophy day had them thinking outside the box to produce action plans, maps, shelters, and pondering the stay or go dilemma – which generated lots of interesting presentations and debates. And there was fund-raising, too, in support of Lepra.

Everyone enjoyed a week off timetable, trying different things, visiting new places and going out of their comfort zones – intellectually and physically - in this final flourish of the academic year.
