Year 7 Hike

On Friday, Year 7 completed the annual TIFS Hike to round off their first very successful week of school. Each house was dropped off at various locations around the Island in the morning with a map, and tasked with finding their way back to school as a team. One by one, tired but happy, the groups arrived back at school with tales of steep hills, heavy but brief showers of rain and lots of beautiful views. Each pupil that completed the hike earned their bronze expedition badge in the pre-Duke of Edinburgh programme. Miss Allcock said “I am so proud of Year 7 and what they have achieved today – the hike is not easy and I’ve seen nothing but smiles. Congratulations to Year 7, and thank you to all of the members of staff who accompanied pupils and provided much needed moral support and sweet treats to keep them going!”
