Infection! Malaria, Measles and TB. To work towards our Platinum Scout Award, we had to make a 5 minute presentation about a given disease. In groups, all of us researched and created a news like presentation which we performed to the other explorers. We learnt and shared shocking infomation, and and in the time we did our news shows, we worked out that 69 people would have died from these 3 diseases.

Balls everywhere. This week we went to the American Golf center where we shot golf balls into the distance. However, most of us weren't very good, but we tried our best.

Over 500 people, the largest ever! 
We had snacks, sparklers, a bonfire and a half an hour long firework display. It was a bit muddy but we had yummy burgers to eat.

Halloween Party!

For Halloween we had a Explorer party! Games, food, music and absolute chaos! We ate donuts off of strings, did apple bobbing and put our faces in bowls of flour (ew). Plus there were mummies made out of toilet paper!!
