Back in the Barracks

A group of sports students visited a barracks in Darlington to take part in a team building activity day.

The groups were split into 3 teams and spent the day competing against each other through a range of different activities. These activities tested a range of skills including physical fitness, team work and co-ordination.

The groups took part in an army style physical training session as well as firing live rounds from a rifle on the purpose built firing range. Problem solving tasks and learning how to strip down and rebuild semi-automatic weapon helped the students to work on their team work skills.

Captain Garner, who is from the Army Reserve Centre, oversaw the day and complemented the students on their behaviour and dedication. 

The event was such a success that plans are underway for future visits.
