On the final Thursday and Friday before half term, Surbiton High Boys’ Prep Year 3 boys went on their first residential trip to Juniper Hall on Box Hill in Dorking. For many, this was their first night away from their parents so there were a few nerves as the bus departed school.
Upon arrival, the boys were taught some bushcraft survival skills and how to visually communicate using semaphore signals. Next, they went on a walk into the local village using a map to identify different landmarks and assess the environment surrounding them. After a hearty meal, it was time for cake and hot chocolate before settling down for the night.
In the morning, all boys were up bright and early and had to make their own packed lunch for the day ahead. Mrs. Still’s sandwich-making conveyor belt proved to be quite successful! The final activities of the trip were shelter-building and an orienteering scavenger hunt task. Throughout the trip, the teachers were very impressed with the behaviour and enthusiasm of all pupils. The boys all had a fantastic time and were great role models and ambassadors for their school.
