Risedale pupils get Air Trail reward trip

Risedale at Air Trail.

Year 9 pupils from Risedale School visited Air Trail at the Tees Barrage this week as a reward for hard work.

Pupils were accompanied by PE teacher Mr Pugh and KS3 pupil support manager Mrs Wright.

The reward trip was organised to recognise the hard work and positive attitude of year 9 pupils for the last half term.

Pupils were selected for the trip if they had earned a high number of Epraise points, maintained zero or very few negative behaviour events and demonstrated good attendance.

Air Trail is the UK’s biggest Sky Trail adventure course.

It is set over 4 levels, with over 38 unique challenges. The course is designed to test your nerves and your balance with its wobbly rope bridges, tight ropes, cargo nets and swinging stepping stones. The course also features two full-length zip rails.

Mr Pugh said: “It was great to reward those pupils in year 9 who have been working hard in school and acknowledge their achievements in receiving the most Epraise points in their year group.

“The pupils had a fantastic morning out and really enjoyed themselves. They pushed themselves out of their comfort zones to brave the heights and zip line through the air.”

KS3 pupil support manager Mrs Wright, said: “This was a great reward for the pupils as they have all worked really hard over the last half term.

“It was a real privilege to accompany them on the trip and see them all enjoying themselves. And I loved it too!”
