70 Year 6 children from across the Acorn MAT came together at Thorncombe St Mary’s Primary School for an overnight camp with Royal Marines from Elite Commando Survival. The camp was organised by Luke Owen, Executive Head at Thorncombe, as part of the Acorn MAT’s enhanced transition for pupils heading to secondary school. During the camp children completed a variety of tasks, such as: casualty extraction drills, assault courses, traversing wide expanses, constructing viaducts to transport water, shooting, campfire lighting, hiking and most challenging of all, assembling their overnight tents!
