Sailing Trip 2018 – The students have their say!

Noel Okolie – The trip gave me the opportunity to make friends and moments to remember. One day we were playing the cardboard game it was really fun and there were other games, we had to create a story. We got to steer the boat out at sea, it was really fun! This trip gave me more confidence to achieve my goals because of the crew aboard the boat, whose only objective to bring us to our destination safety.

Adam Abla – There was a variety of opportunities. Many included being helpful around the boat. There were lots of activities such as, playing games, going to the beach, steering and much more. The highlights were going to Brixham and seeing the Golden Hind. Whilst we were at Bleak water beach, we spotted a seal which was pretty cool. The trip has definitely developed myself, it has given me confidence to do well in lessons and it was super fun!

Taylor Clark – I had the chance to learn how to sail a 100 year old boat around Devon. In pairs we had to do an Anker watch in the middle of the night which was scary but fun! The best highlight was off on our own to complete challenges in Brixham and making all different knots on the skeep.

Parent feedback – “He realised he could do things on his own and his self-esteem is much better than before he went. The trip has given my son more confidence to try new things and to believe in himself”

Adam – “You’re not going to get anywhere if you slack off. Grab a rope and get the sails up to GET MOVING!”

Parent feedback – “Fantastic opportunity for the children to have, learn new skills and do something they probably never would. Adam had a great time learning new skills, including household chores. Many thanks to all involved who helped keep the children safe”
