OBH Challenge

We kicked off the first boarding weekend in style with the OBH Challenge.

On Saturday night the boarders were split into tribes and a tribal elder was elected to keep control and, more importantly, make sure everyone was in the right place at the right time. Once we had organised the tribes we

embarked on our boarders favourite game of  ‘Manhunt’, which ,this year, had a slight twist.  The hunter force were allowed to use their bikes which made the chase much more exciting!


After church on Sunday the tribes, led by their elders, designed their own flag to carry around with them throughout the afternoon.  They were colourful and very distinctive! Mrs Bolton would have been very proud of their creativity.

The children rotated around four stands which included:  rocket building and launching, fire making, bike obstacle course and a scavenger hunt. We finished off the afternoon with a final stand. They had to manoeuvre over a slippery obstacle course carrying water to fill a bucket holding a key to their prize box. Needless to say it was messy, wet and very funny!

The afternoon was a great success and the children all fell into bed at lights out totally exhausted!

Thank you to the boarding team for a fantastic start to this new academic year.
