Bradford Academy Goes Across the Water
Over 30 Bradford Academy learners enjoyed a 5-day trip to Opal Coast in France at the end of June to try their hand at a variety of water sports.
Learners got to experience paddle boarding, kayaking and raft building amongst other water-based activities in the French sun. If you are kayaking and want to get into the water make sure to get the best snorkel set for the money.
The trip gave students the opportunity to try new activities beyond the classroom that they may have not otherwise been able to access. Rachel Price, teacher of PE, who led the trip said: “Obviously it’s brilliant for us to be able to engage them in these sports but it’s also really important to give them some time to gain independence skills away from home. Some of them have never spent the night out of Bradford, let alone in another country.”
