The Stour Academy Trust is thrilled to report on the resounding success of the Annual Year 4 Camping weekend, held over the past two weekends for Year 4 children across the Trust. The camping adventure is an opportunity for children to take part in a weekend filled with fun, educational activities designed to foster resilience, teamwork, and creativity.
This year, the camping adventure saw children revel in a plethora of experiences, from inflatable activities and laser tag, to fire making and water games. But perhaps the highlight of the weekends was the traditional evening of songs and smores around the campfire, creating a warm atmosphere of camaraderie and a sense of belonging. The Trust is proud to offer these opportunities, completely free of charge, underscoring its commitment to provide engaging and enriching experiences for all pupils.
One member of the Trust Central Team expressed their delight at the success of the weekends, stating: “It’s truly heart-warming to see the joy on our children’s faces during these events. As a Trust, we believe in nurturing not just academic prowess but also life skills and personal growth. The camping adventure is a wonderful testament to this vision. We couldn’t have achieved this without the dedication of all those involved in planning and executing the activities, and we extend our deepest gratitude to them.”
The Stour Academy Trust prides itself on fostering an environment that extends learning beyond the classroom. Events like the camping adventure are seen as essential to developing well-rounded pupils who are prepared for life’s challenges. This year’s camping adventure was not just an unforgettable experience for the children involved, but also a shining testament to the Trust’s commitment to holistic education.
The Stour Academy Trust extends its warmest thanks to everyone involved in organising and facilitating these two wonderful weekends. The success of this event showcases the unwavering dedication of our staff in ensuring our children have opportunities for memorable experiences and personal growth.
