It was a pleasure to attend the presentation and awards afternoon of the Go for It Girls. A select group of girls from East Lothian who have spent the past year working towards their John Muir Explorer Award. The girls gave an excellent oral presentation on their work; produced a wall display of captioned photos of themselves at work; were presented with certificates; presented certificates to staff that had worked with them to support them in achieving their award. A fantastic afternoon was topped off with a wonderful buffet.
The girls have been working hard over the past year challenging themselves through adventurous activities in wild places; gaining increased environmental knowledge whilst picking up knowledge and skills to do with their topic of mammals;sharing experiences;teamwork skills;incresing confidennce through sharing their experiences to a wider audience. The Awards were well deserved and the girls had been required to work very hard to achieve this – often in quite challenging outdoor environments.
Go for It? – too right they did and they are all ready to begin on their next challenge in life.
