Pupils at a Horsham school took part in a day of diverse activities.

On Thursday October 4 Christ’s Hospital school students joined together for an action packed day of fun.

The event included everything from a treasure hunt and a woodland adventure to bread-making and first aid workshops.

The bread-making workshop was run by Philippa Laughton, head of food at Christ’s Hospital.

She said: “It was really hard to make a bread basket out of dough, but the pupils did really well and the results smell and look delicious.”

Year seven children enjoyed a treasure hunt which led them on a complicated trail of challenges all around the Christ’s Hospital grounds.

The children were spilt into teams before being given a brain-teaser puzzle to solve in order to receive their treasure maps.

They then had to complete a series of tasks, including axe-throwing, bridge-building, archery and a human catapult to find the treasure.

They then had fun food workshops involving making cookies and naming their creations.

Other age groups had drama sessions, anti-smoking workshops, bushcraft and army training, to name but a few, as well as trips outside the school.

Those venturing to other locations got to visit Hever Castle, to walk from Amberley to Arundel or to visit the escape rooms.

Christ’s Hospital school was founded more than 460 years ago.

Iti is the leading charitable boarding school in the UK.
