Exciting activity weekend for Remove at Calshot

The Remove girls travelled to the Calshot Activities Centre near Southampton for a fun-packed weekend taking part in a host of activities, many of which they had never tried before and ranging from watersports to velodrome cycling.

They stayed in dorms with a girl from another House to help them to meet and bond with girls they didn’t already know very well in preparation for their term in Veyrines next year. The Centre is in a prime location on the shores of the Solent giving access to one of Britain’s best sailing areas and during the weekend, all of the girls did dinghy sailing, windsurfing and kayaking and everyone capsized at least once!

The girls also enjoyed rock climbing on the indoor climbing wall, snowboarding on the artificial indoor snow slope, track cycling in the indoor velodrome as well as low ropes, team swing and archery.

Cleo in Remove said, “I have many enjoyable memories of Calshot and it was a good opportunity to bond and make friends. One of my favourite activities was snowboarding because it was a new experience. It was more challenging than I thought it would be and it demands a lot of hard work to stop yourself falling down but it was very entertaining! Overall I think that everyone adored snowboarding and that they will cherish this experience forever.”
