Sixth Form Reward Trip

On Thursday 8th December, for our Reward Trip we were privileged to go to Teamworks karting and laser tag as a recognition of our behaviour and attitude during the Autumn Term. It was around 9.30 in the morning by the time everyone had arrived at the site in Digbeth. After briefings, we were split up into 2 groups (Year 12 and Year 13). We (Year 12) started on laser tag first and were split into 4 separate teams. We played 3 games against another team.  My team, after losing the first, came back and won the latter matches, with me being the top individual performer for the second 2 games! The laser tag was epic, with the venue having a good layout and decent lighting.

Then we were allowed out for lunch and were able get food from Birmingham town centre.   We then made our way back to the venue.

After lunch, we had to change into race suits for the karting, and the Year 13s went to do the laser tag. After changing, we were taken down to the track and split into 4 groups so we could race safely on the track. After seeing the previous groups crash a bit, I was quite scared to go onto the track however, when we started driving, I felt very comfortable and drove well. In fact, out of my group I actually had the fastest lap time of 31.62 seconds!  I was shocked at how fast the karts actually went, especially down the straights.

Overall, the day was a very enjoyable experience and we all had lots of fun.
