Fun and games at Holy Family School
1:29pm Friday 25th October 2013 in Keighley
Fun and games courtesy of a visiting team from Derby-shire brought a welcome respite for hard- working pupils at a Keighley school.
A four-strong outreach group from a retreat called the Briars staged a session with 150 year 11 students at Holy Family Catholic School. Holy Family has an established link to the Briars, and makes use of it to give its GCSE students a chance to reflect and relax during their hectic examination year.
The outreach team spent a morning with the year 11 pupils to give them a taste of the activities on offer at the Briars.
Clare Pullen, of Holy Family’s RE department, said: “The students took part in team-building games. One of them involved them all having to lower a stick at the same time without it tipping – which was harder than it sounds!
“They also threw an inflatable globe to each other, learning facts about the world as they did so, and each student made a mask which was designed to represent themselves.
“The students really enjoyed the morning. They were very enthusiastic.”
