​The wild side of Stroud School

Posted on 22nd Jun 2021 in School News, Outdoor Learning

Stroud School in Romsey is enjoying a week of bushcraft activities and camping out as part of its “Intrepidus Week”: a week of exciting activities to develop resilience, collaboration and curiosity for its pupils!

Set in the school’s 22 acres of grounds, the week’s unique timetable consists of gardening, pond dipping, mini-bug hunting, country dancing, drama, nature walks, cookery, Forest School, swimming, as well as bushcraft activities and camping out overnight!

It is a week of bravery, challenges and enjoyment – Stroud children will get to try new things and have a go at everything!

The school motto, In Aeternum Intrepidus (Forever Undaunted), has inspired the school to create a week that pushes children outside their comfort zone and into a world of curiosity, teamwork, being in nature and having as much fun as possible.

The Summer Term is usually a chance for children to enjoy trips and residentials. With this in mind, Stroud invited Campfire Wild Adventures to join them for this week and spend a day and night with each school bubble within the school grounds. The camp includes a range of bushcraft activities, teamwork opportunities and the chance for the children to cook their own food over a campfire they have made themselves! Rumour has it there have been marshmallows, hot chocolate and singing round the campfire!

This is a wonderful opportunity for all children in Years 3 to 8 to enjoy some independence and experience the excitement of staying away from home, albeit in the familiarity of the school grounds.

All of the activities will be undertaken in bubbles with appropriate Covid precautions, in line with government guidelines at the time. To see Stroud School for yourself, please visit www.stroud-kes.org.uk or call 01794 513231 to book your visit.
