During the short half term break, thirty pupils went on a five-day sailing trip to Beidaihe. This was the College’s 6th annual trip. Our hosts, Beijing Sailing Centre, have an excellent beachside location, and all pupils and staff had an educational and fun-packed week.
Our young sailors had a chance to develop skills in Sailing, Windsurfing, Paddle-boarding and Kayaking and the progress made over the week was impressive especially considering the unusually unpredictable weather and strong winds. Many congratulations go to Leo who achieved his Gold IYT Certificate and also to all the sailors who achieved their bronze IYT certificates.
In addition to the sailing we had some stunning beach evenings playing beach football, volleyball and a bonfire BBQ night. The whole trip fostered friendships, developed team and leadership skills and will have embedded rich memories that pupils will cherish for many years to come.
