Pupils start new survival course in School woods

Farfield Year 9 have started the new ‘Survival course’. The course is based loosely on a military escape and evasion exercise. They have experienced shelter building and fire building and will as the weeks go by take part in wild food preparation, open fire cooking, emergency first aid, and participate in ‘escape and evade’ exercises. Designed by Mr Majid, Head of Adventure the course is open to all pupils and is intended to hone interpersonal and life skills such as team building, leadership, resilience, and self-confidence and will encourage pupils to care about the outdoors and their local environment.
