Caythorpe Court 2018

Residential trip with Harlington and Chalton Lower Schools

Last week children from Harlington, Sundon and Chalton Lower schools went on a residential educational visit
for four days to a PGL site at Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire. The children and adults participated in a
wide range of outdoor activities. The day time activities included air rifle shooting, climbing, archery,
abseiling, zip wire, giant swing, orienteering, challenge assault courses and all aboard.  The night time
activities included ambush, campfire and all around the world.  All activities required the children to
develop their team building skills, physical stamina and values.

'Once I worked out my technique I could easily get over the platforms on all aboard.' Izabella

ten points.' Ikenna
'I loved the archery where I needed to slowly pull back the bow and aim for the middle to score a ten.' Lui
