Canoe and Camping Trip

We started off at Norham.  We paddled our canoes down the River Tweed and camped under a bridge.  Put tents up, made fires, and ate munchies.   Got woken up too early and paddled down to Berwick upon Tweed where Frances bought us McDee’s.

SVS Camping Trip

We went camping on the 23rd of May.  We went to Cranshaws.  We had to walk 8 miles to get there, it was good.  Every 2 mile we stopped for a break and had something to eat and drink.  When we finally got there we set up the tent and mucked about for a few hours and then made some food and after we had a game of rugby.  When it got dark we got a game of hide and seek for the rest of the night and every two games we heated up marshmellows and went back for another game.

In the morning we packed everything away and made some breakfast and left.  When we left we went somewhere to go gorge walking it was great fun we were absolutely soaking and had no change of clothes.

Flyers and lists..  who needs a wash?

SVS pupils have offered their skills to staff at Preston Lodge, and will be washing wheels/alloys and windscreens for a very competitive price (£1 for wheels and 50p for windscreen).  They have researched which products and tools to use and have had much practice.  The washing will take place in staff carparks and will be under supervision.  If you are interested please contact one of the following students:

March 2008 – Rubberband Car Challenge

Students were given the challenge of constructing a wind-up rubberband car.  After research and design phases they got into the building stage with varying success.  The outright winner was ‘Team Thompson’ (owned and developed by design maestro Jamie Thompson) whose car was raced on the day by Lee ‘The Real Deal’ Buchanan.  With a winning distance of 43.5cm, the competition were left scratching their heads – as can be seen in the pics below.
