The bunkhouse isn’t just a great place for outdoor, youth and school groups. It’s also superb for family and friends getting together and spending quality time in the outdoors.

On Wednesday September 23rd a group of 14 Year 12 and 13 students from French, German, and Spanish travelled to Rosedale, accompanied by Miss Mark, Miss Wilson, Mr Mann, and Mr Heeley. On arrival at Rosedale the activities commenced. Activities included: the wooden skis, marbles, the helium stick, blindfolded jigsaw, juggling, interlinked handcuffs, tie a knot around a chair, and retrieve the bomb from the pool of custard sharks. After a few hours of activities we had a hot chocolate break. Next we went on a scavenger hunt and had to use languages to think of a word for all the letters in LADY LUMLEY’S LANGUAGES.

The Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition certainly does this.
