Navigating around the Vogrie Estate the teams completed a range of problem solving and team challenges.

Teams are scored on aspects of teamwork and successful task completion with high challenge scores gaining an advantage on the final challenge.

All the teams showed amazing resiliance and character and visible learning was evident throughout the event.

We are looking forward to next event already – and as mentioned at the challenge – Good luck to all our S6 Learners in the coming busy months.

Thanks again to all the staff from our Secondary Schools who enable this event to happen and a support from Vogrie Country Park and the Active Schools Team
