I have never been on a school trip before where I have received so many ‘thank yous’ throughout the day from the children for taking them somewhere. The course was exciting, challenging and incredibly muddy! Even the most hesitant children pushed through their apprehension, thanks to the encouragement of the wonderful Marshalls, overcoming personal fears and experiencing a great sense of pride at the end.
The point of the team building trip was clearly not lost on them. I saw children supporting each other, cheering their friends on and offering a helping hand if needed. I was very grateful for a little team who dragged me out of the mud at one point! I think my highlight was when one child, whilst running beside me, said, “ It was so lovely… I’ve just had children helping me who I have never even spoken to before”. Another said, “I know this is a school day I will never, ever forget!”
Mission accomplished – relationships grown, team work developed and personal achievements soaring through the roof… and just the most amount of muddy fun ever!
Thank you so much to all the staff at Nuclear Races – we’ll be back!
