Students get adventurous
STUDENTS from Duchy College Rosewarne enjoyed an adventurous trip recently as they got to grips with some daring activities at BF Adventure in Penryn.
Level 1 and Level 2 Animal Care students got a taste of the outdoors in a team building day where they tried their hand at archery, had a go at problem solving and team building games and challenged their fears on the zip wire!
Sue Emery, Student Liaison Officer, said: “It was a great trip and helped the students feel more confident, improved their team working and communication skills and they also got to participate in activities they wouldn’t normally have the chance to. The students learnt that they can achieve anything if they try and they are already saying that they’d like to go back and try the different activities that BF Adventure has to offer - fun was had by all!”
The trip was arranged as part of the students’ enrichment time and was subsidised by Cornwall College Students’ Union (CCSU).
Andrew Counsell, Head of Duchy College, said: “This was great experience for the group; students learn so much from trying new things and working together.”
