JCoSS goes………………….White Water Rafting at Lea Valley
Led by the herculean Mr Mitman, over one hundred Year 7 students visited the spectacular Lea Valley white water rafting centre in Waltham Abbey for a day of fun-filled wetness. After spending the morning scientifically studying the entire Olympic site, the students were struggling to quell their anticipatory excitement at the prospect of being hurled around the rapids in a glorified dingy. Having squeezed themselves into their clingy, but rather fetching wetsuit attire they were then briefed by the instructors on the potential hazards of white water rafting as well as learning the key paddle skills they needed to keep the boat moving forward. The students were quite literally chomping at the bit, with the ensuing few hours on the water, providing many a Kodak moment.
