On 7th October we took the new Year 7’s on their first ever Empower Day to Walton Firs. It is safe to say that the day was a resounding success. It consisted of a lot challenges designed to test each group’s ability to work together, communicate and overcome challenges. These skills were seen in abundance throughout the day and the girls really took to the tasks working with each other and developing the vital skills needed to empower each of them.
Although it was a chilly day it did not dampen the girls’ spirits, they threw themselves into every activity and in particular the adventure course, with many emerging covered from head to toe in mud. There was a real sense of camaraderie as the girls worked through the tasks. A truly great empowering day, and hopefully the first of many to come for Year 7.
