All the 5/6 classes went on an excursion to The Gordon Institute. It was great fun. On the bus there, everyone was chatting about what they would like to do when they grow up.
Once we got there, we met a lady named Sue. She took us up to the Gordon auditorium and talked to us about different courses that you can do. There were many interesting courses, and you can see them on the website here.
We played a charades type game, where you could win a Chuppa Chup, then found out about ‘The Gordon Race’!
The race was where you had to walk around the Gordon campus, and try to answer all the questions provided in a booklet. We were in groups of 2 or 3, and all we had was the questions, a basic map of the campus, a coordinates guide where it would tell you where the courses are held, and a course guide. From there, we were on our own.
Everyone was rushing around, trying to frantically to answer the questions and be the first back to the auditorium with all their answers correct.
The first question got a few people stuck, but after that everyone was working together answering all the questions. One of the questions was to go to the Fashion Lab and look for a glass cabinet and write what was inside. Hardly anyone knew where the cabinet was so I (Amy and Marie) ended up asking a teacher for the answer. There was actually nothing in there!
Once everyone was back, and my group (Gemma, Eleanor and Sophie) had got back second last, and were embarrassed as everyone was looking at us, we sat down and watched a video about the Gordon.
Then we went to Johnstone Park for first lunch and went back to school.
Watch a quick video about The Gordon that Gemma made.
