Here at Badu Sports we offer all our schools the opportunity for them to choose students to attend our annual residential trip to Devon. This gives the students a great opportunity to spend a week away in a different environment, making new friends, getting involved in various activities like abseiling down a cliff, team building activities and various other experiences. We believe this experience teaches the students vital life skills like spreading their own bed, making sure their dorm is tidy and organising their belongings for the week.
The trip is usually for year six students giving them the opportunity to meet children who will be attending the same secondary school as them, allowing them to build relationships early. As a lot of us know the anxiety that some children face when attending a new school.
This trip has been a successful experience for both us and the students attending, running over 9 years giving over 2,000 students the opportunity. We would like to thank the Jamie Procter foundation (www.jamieproctersfoundation.org) for giving us and the children this great opportunity.
