On Friday 22nd October 24 Year 10 pupils who are following building craft, engineering and hair and beauty courses at Cornwall College St Austell attended a morning of team- building challenges at Porthpean Outdoor Education Centre. They were challenged to climb the 'Jacobs Ladder', where they had to help each other take giant steps up huge ladders, climb the 'wobbly pole' and then stand on a platform the size of a dinner tray at 30 feet in the air. They also took the 'leap of faith' from a platform 25 feet in the air.

'The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the activities and learned a lot about trusting each other and taking responsibility for their team' said Linzi Booth Director of Specialsim who organised the course to complement the learning taking place at the college.
