Fleetwood Town Community Trust have had a action packed week at Tower Wood as part of their three week National Citizen Service (NCS) programme.
Over 40 students, along with a number of staff from the Trust and Myerscough College went to the Lake District on Monday morning for an adventure week at Tower Wood Education Centre.
With three phases to the NCS programme (Adventure, Discovery and Social), the first week was about the students getting out of their comfortable zones, working alongside boys and girls they wouldn't have met before to take on a host of challenges set by the staff at Tower Wood.
One of the tasks was for the students to work together to build rafts - which were eventually taken onto Lake Windermere to take on water based challenges. Groups also had to work as a team in a number of activities on the assault course and also on the sailing boats. An activity that all talked about once they came back on dry land.
Stage three starts on Monday 29th July at Myerscough College, and this week will focus on the students learning about how to be more independent with cooking classes, puplic speaking lessons and much more. This will happen earlier in the week before all set their eyes on a chairty project, which will take place in week three.
It was a fantastic week for all involved and we would like to say thank you to the staff at Tower Wood for their hospitality over the week. We look forward to coming back in the near future.
