Students enjoyed hot weather during expedition

A group of students from Pool Academy enjoyed a weekend away as part of Duke of Edinburgh Award activities.

Six youngsters with special needs completed an expedition in and around the Portreath area recently.

They camped, walked and swam over the two-day expedition in hot summer weather.

Sarah Jackson, Learning Facilitator at Pool Academy, said: “We took six special needs children over the weekend around the Portreath area.

“We camped at Cambrose Touring Park where we employed an ex-student, who is a qualified life guard, so the group could have an hour and a half in the swimming pool after being out in really hot weather conditions.

“We had a lovely time.”

She said the group plan to do more walking and take part in sailing in July.
