Queens’ Year 9 work together on their ‘survival skills’

Head of Adventure, Mr Majid demonstrated the correct way to use a knife, saw and axe so that the girls could collect and prepare wood and other material to make a fire. They will build on this initial skill in the coming weeks, working together to hone their ‘survival skills’, learning how to prepare wild food, cook on an open fire, and the rudiments of emergency first aid. Shelter building is the next skill to perfect when Queens’ return to the School woods.
