Pupils take to the water in first Canoeing activity

Rendcomb College pupils enjoyed a morning of kayaking and canoeing as part of the new Saturday activities programme.

Senior School pupils visited Lake 86 at the Cotswold Water Park as part of the new Canoeing activity in which pupils will have the opportunity to earn the British Canoe Union (BCU) 1 and 2 Star Awards.

Pupils started the day individually in Kayaks, learning how to manoeuvre on the water before swapping into a 2 person canoe.

Head of Science and activity leader, Mr Matt Cox, said: “The aim is for the pupils to have fun and become more comfortable on the water while also receiving an award they can build upon in the future.

“The Cotswold water park is a beautiful setting and we have been lucky enough so far to have some glorious weather, glorious enough for a few pupils to get a dunking at the end of the day!”
