Outward Bound Experience

Posted Wednesday September 6, 2023

At the end of Term Two, I went to Outward Bound in Anakiwa near Picton. Outward Bound is a challenging three week course where you do kayaking, tramping, service days around the base, swimming, sailing, running, rock climbing and going solo in the bush. At the end we finished with a 21km half marathon. We were in groups of fourteen people of similar ages and got to mix with other groups. The main highlight for me was doing it alongside others and making some new friends. Thanks to St Peter’s College for sponsoring me to do this. If someone else gets the chance to do this I would totally recommend it. Take it!!
