Fairlop Waters

May 30th 2023


On the 19th May 2023, a group of 30 Loxford students spent the day at Fairlop Waters. The day stated with a safety briefing and an induction on how to use the equipment. The first half of the day was spent canoeing, here the students quickly learnt the importance of communication when working as a team to power and steer the canoe. Students marvelled at the wonderful avian life on the water as they travelled around the lake. The second half of the day involved working in teams of 6 to build a raft that could support the team. Through guidance from the instructors the students managed to make a working vessel out of just rope, some wood and barrels.  

“I have learnt the importance of working as a team and delegating tasks in order to be successful on the water, the trip gave me a great sense of achievement and adventure”
