kielder challenge 2011

Kielder Challenge is probably the most enjoyable and rewarding aspects of my job. Each year four pupils from our school plus four pupils from Fosse Way School (a very special catering for young people with physical disabilities and/or severe learning difficulties), get together to compete in this national outdoor adventure event and competition which has run for over 25 years.
Yesterday, the pupils met for their first training/introductory session. It was very humbling watching them bond together so naturally and easily (and almost instantly!) - LOTS of laughter!
Whatever the outcome of our endeavours, it’ll be a life-enhancing experience for all of us taking part.
