PCSOs plot Easter adventure activities for Buxton schoolchildren

Posted on 28th March 2013

A group of teenagers will be heading out on adventure days with officers from Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Team over the Easter break.

The youngsters, from Buxton Community School, will take part in a range of activities at Oaklands Manor Outdoor Leadership Centre.

Two groups of 10 teenagers will be taking on climbing walls, rope challenges, orienteering, cave exploring and more during the residential trips on April 8-9 and 11-12.

The activities are designed to promote team building, self-respect, confidence, respect for others and will help the youngsters discover new skills.

PCSOs Linda Cook and Ally Ratcliffe, from Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Team, will be joining the pupils and their teachers over the course of the adventure days.

PCSO Cook, who helped organise the events, said: “We wanted to organise the adventure days to give some of the schoolchildren positive and exciting activities to get stuck into over Easter.

“The great thing is that they also promote team building, self-confidence and lots of other attributes that will help these children out greatly.

“Diversionary activities such as these are a brilliant way for us to engage with children from all walks of life and encourage them to act responsibly and respectfully.”

The trips have been organised by Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Team in partnership with staff at Buxton Community School. Oaklands Manor is located just outside Buxton.
