On October 2nd, two year 6 pupils from Abbotswood (Poppy and Chloe), along with 1 former pupil (now in year 7) and 2 more participants from their 2nd Totton Girls Brigade, took part in the Moonraker event.
Organised by Youth Options, the event gave the opportunity for 15 groups to complete a 10 mile forest navigated walk, at night, and this year it was in foggy and cold conditions.
Despite the weather, the late hour and some very tired feet, the group from 2nd Totton Girls Brigade persevered and were in fact one of only 6 groups to finish. Their leader, Claire Waters, explained to us how the girls just wanted to keep going, they had no intention of giving up and their determination saw them win the event which also included 3 additional challenges, one at each of the three check points.
Claire was extremely proud of their winning attitudes and was keen for us to share their story as it fits so well with mindset work that all of the abbotswood children have been learning about this half term.
Well done to the girls and their leader! Great to see how hard work and team spirit can pay off.
