Fun start for sixth formers at South Craven School
8:00am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
A fun-filled day of activities to integrate new, senior pupils from different schools has been staged in Cross Hills.
The year 12 induction took place at South Craven School.
It was arranged to help break the ice between the newly arrived students and to ease the transition into the final phase of their school education.
The latest installment of the popular annual event featured a variety of fun, lively physical, mental and musical challenges. Year 13 PE pupils helped supervise a wet and muddy Let’s Get Physical assault course.
A separate exercise saw the students use co-operation and ingenuity to see how high they could lift a surf board off the ground using only paper, sticky tape and string.
They were also tasked with spending no more than 35 minutes composing an original and entertaining song about being in the sixth form.
Sixth form support manager Paula Rhodes said: “It was a really good day. The students all enjoyed it and got to know each other, though they were a bit soggy by the end.”
Previous year 12 induction days at South Craven have included quizzes, debates, fancy dress, treasure hunts and other games.
