S2 pupils have been taking part in their Forest Wild John Muir Days in October and November.

They had outdoor fun climbing trees, trying mindfulness techniques and having a go on some rope courses.  Some days were pretty cold but as you can see from the smiles they really enjoyed their experience.

Pupils have also been reminded to complete days in their own time too so that they can achieve the Explorer Award at the end of the year!

The team (Thomas Clarke (S6), Ythan Shaw (S5), Joe Sinclair (S6) and James Phillips (S5)) are pictured here outside the venue at Robert Gordon’s College with their silver certificates. They were also the top state school in this round of the competition.

We are thrilled with their achievement in this very tough event; their excellent teamwork and effort really paid off.

A full report will be included in the next AHS Newsletter.
