Whitehall - 2022

Every year our year 2s - 6s visit Whitehall Buxton, Whitehall Buxton is an over night activity centre where our students learn valuable skills and face fears or worries. This year our school was treated with a new game and dorms, people never new existed. The activities the school faced ranged from biking to abseiling and even caving with night activities like: The Night Hike, Woods Have Eyes (pie tin hunting), Movie Night and Secret Agents. Sadly, trees surrounding the area ,which were there previous years, had to be chopped down due to rotting so the commonly known as 'Y6 activity' had to be cancelled this year since it was attached to trees. We all really enjoyed it and can't wait to go again hopefully with other years.      Over and out....Sophie, Year 6
