Mr Rose’s tutor group used team tactics and initiative on a recent after-school paintballing trip. 12R were divided into two teams, equipped with overalls and paintball guns and given instructions to fight each other for territory, flags and glory. This was at the indoor venue in Corby, filled by smoke and the sounds of battle.
This was an evening event accompanied, and organised, by Mr Rose and Mrs Lawson-Johnson. It was a brilliant event and the students behaved impeccably, despite the bruises and pain. They are very keen to go again, despite it being very intense at times.
Tabatah Egbetamah said: 'It was very motivating because you worked in a team, and that made it a lot more fun. My bruises were like a souvenir of my first time paintballing. I really enjoyed it and we should do it again.'
‘It was a very stimulating experience, and a surprisingly enjoyable sport; it was far more intense than I anticipated' said Julia Komor.
'It was quite a rush, running around with bullets whizzing past your head. I found myself making fast friends with people I didn’t know before, when we were all pinned down behind a bunker.' said Gautham Kumar.
