Team Building Activities

Year 12 Business Diploma students experienced a unique approach to team-building when they visited a Go Ape activity centre.

The students - including a cohort from Lodge Park Technology College - are studying for a Business, Finance and Administration Diploma.

As part of their team-building, they spent a day helping each other to conquer their fears on obstacle courses which are suspended high amongst the tree tops.

They had to complete different crossings then travel down on a zip line.

Business Studies Teacher John Atkinson said: "It was an excellent day had by all with students grouping together to help each other. Every student completed the course fully and received a certificate for their outstanding team work in encouraging and advising each other through the course."

The students have also been inspired by a motivational coach who visited the Academy recently to help develop life skills.

Andy Gibney uses performance and psychological principles to help students find the motivation, enthusiasm and skills to become successful in life. 

His workshop covered communication skills, time management and confidence.
