Bush Craft

Bush Craft is a new activity that has been introduced at the College this term by Matt Mandrall a Forest School Practitioner and newest member of the Activities team. Students have been in the woods to learn about nature and practical skills such as sawing fire wood, making shelters and camp-fire cooking. They have also been enjoying relaxing in hammocks, learning to identify flora and fauna, making art out of natural materials and eating tasty meals they have helped prepare.

The Bush Craft activities have helped the students in building confidence and self esteem through setting achievable tasks and encouraged social interaction through various fun and engaging games. Matt has had a great time getting to know the students and of course helping out eating the forest banquets!
