UK adventure camp for Grade 10 students


Over the Easter holidays, a group of thirty Form Three students and three teachers from San Anton School, were part of a larger group of Maltese students to go on an adventure trip to the UK. Physical activities and fieldwork studies were the subjects chosen, and for eight days these students resided at the PGL activity centre in Barton Hall Torquay, in the United Kingdom.

Some of the physical activities were extremely demanding and the youngsters had to muster enough courage and determination to finish the appointed tasks. These challenges included swinging on a giant swing, canoeing, zip wire, raft building, abseiling, wall-climbing and Jacob’s ladder. Other activities included fencing, archery, dry slope skiing and map reading.

During the field-studies sessions, the students performed various tests on pollution and observed animal habitats. These took place on the River Lemon nearby. Another highlight during the week was the coastal walk around the Torbay area, where the group was able to trek over cliffs, pebbled beaches and through woodland.

This trip, apart from being great fun, served also as a bonding exercise for the students and their teachers, and is proof that most challenges can be overcome with enough determination and team-work. “ PGL was an amazing experience, that I will never forget. I learnt a lot from this trip, made loads of friends, and am missing every minute I spent at Barton Hall.” commented Julia Formosa, a Grade 10 Student.
