In Year 8 & 9 students have the opportunity to do the Adventure Service Challenge scheme. This is one of the options during Activities week and involves an excellent expedition by foot and by canoe in Fowey. The scheme has three main elements of activity that will be delivered as part of a personal development package. Participants will take part in;
Discovery, exploration, leisure pursuits, attitudes to and skills for life;
Concern for others, opportunities for helping those in need;
A comprehensive and complete training programme.
The ASC scheme is complete in itself but it will also provide a good grounding for those wanting to continue onto DofE and other volunteering, expedition and/or adventurous pursuits
Those taking part are not in competition with each other, their progress is assessed on the measure of their own personal achievement.
