Inspiring young adventurers
21 Jan 2015
Over the course of the week, representatives from The Perse Outdoor Pursuits Department have been delivering interactive talks at the Pelican and at local school The Grove Primary School.
Building on topics covered in class, pupils had the opportunity to look at the different types of equipment and clothing outdoor adventurers might take on their journeys. Pupils tried on down jackets, mountaineering boots, helmets, and several other gadgets and technical pieces of equipment.
Roisin Jackson and Aylwin Racher, current Sixth Form students at the Upper, delivered a fascinating presentation on their last international adventure with the Perse Exploration Society to the Atlas Mountains, Morocco.
This was a worthwhile occasion for students to experience a small part of what is offered by the Perse Outdoor Pursuits Department.
