A full rota for the rest of the term will be handed out this evening.

Programme during exam season

As we discussed at Explorers last week we are very aware that we are currently in the season of GCSE and A-Level examinations, of course, these will be a priority for the majority of Explorers.
For that reason we have decided to run a ‘flexible’ Wednesday night programme for the next few weeks. Each Wednesday we will have two or three activities available, and Explorers can simply choose which one they would like to participate in, regardless of their patrols.
These will be issued on a written programme shortly, but for this evening (10th May) the options will be:

  • Tag Rugby
  • Canoeing
  • Open Fire Cooking

We wish you all the very best of luck in your exams!
