The L6 Get Stuck In with the Army Outreach Team

Thursday 14th September 2017

On Friday 8 September, the L6 braved the damp conditions at Longmoor Camp in Hampshire where Queen Anne’s were the first to experience a bespoke day organised by the Army Outreach Team.

The day was put together by the Army Outreach Team with the aim of getting the girls working together and supporting each other in a tough environment. The girls were truly pushed out of their comfort zone as we believe at Queen Anne’s that they should be trying new things, encouraging them to not give up when things get difficult.

The day began with a safety briefing before the girls were split into two groups. One completed an obstacle course while the other group did a fitness test and drill before swapping over.

The afternoon session was enjoyed immensely by all the girls as they were taken to a virtual shooting range, the Dismounted Close Combat Trainer (DCCT). It is the computer simulated firing range used by the British Armed Forces for training in weapon handling without the risk of handling live weapons. This tested the girls’ ability to keep going, even if they weren’t successful to begin with. The day concluded with a confidence building session where they all got to know each other even better.

We would like to thank the Army Outreach Team for organising such a fantastic day for our L6, they were certainly pushed to the limit and came away having really enjoyed themselves. This is just the start of an action-packed programme for the L6 this year.
