An introduction to canoeing

A group of pupils from Lower Grammar to Poetry participated in a UKCC Level 1 Canoe Kayak Course at the weekend.  They were given an introduction to the sport and 4 hours’ coaching at Hothershall Lodge in Longridge.  Activities ranged from learning basic paddling strokes and how to avoid capsizing, to “Gunnel bobbing” and “kayak running”.  An enormous amount of fun was had by pupils, teachers and coaches alike and everyone enjoyed learning these new skills.
