John Muir Award

As part of the Adventure Learning Provision at Mounts Bay, all the Year 8 students are taking part in the John Muir Award.  The award is split into four different categories of; Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share.
The students are discovering a wide range of wild venues in and around Penwith and so for these have included: Bakers Pit nature reserve, Carn Galver, Trencrom Hill, Tehidy Woods and Lands End.
During our explorations we have investigated; the flora and fauna, skills to keep safe and comfortable in the outdoors, how to cook in the outdoors, how the land is used and what we can do to conserve the environment around us.
Despite some horrible conditions over the last few weeks the students have been able to get out and, even in the wind and rain, they have got stuck into the project.
The next groups will also be working with the National Trust and Cornwall Orienteering club to create a permanent orienteering course at Mayon Cliff near Lands End.
All the students will be presenting their work through an individual project and we look forward to showing the work in the months to come.
