On Friday 12th October to Sunday 14th October the Y12 DPS Public Service group went on a skills based land use outdoor and adventurous activities weekend in Longsleddale, in the Lake District.
The students participated in mountain walking, navigation, rock climbing and abseiling as part of their Level 3 Public Services course. The students worked in three teams and in each individual had to demonstrate different techniques and skills to their instructors. The instructors described the student’s efforts as outstanding and they thought they were enthusiastic and superb.

I had an amazing time at the Longsleddale Outdoor Pursuit Centre. I was a bit worried at first because I have never done anything like that before, but when we got there the scenery was spectacular. We went on a day walk up in the valley and we walked up a mountain.
The guides that went with us were very helpful and a great laugh to be with. When we reached the top it was a great achievement, we were all beaming with happiness. We also did rock climbing and abseiling which was a great experience as I had never done that activity before. I am thinking about taking up abseiling as a new hobby because I really enjoyed it.
