Students braved the rapids on the 2012 Olympic canoe slalom course at Lee Valley White Water Centre.

Epping St John’s represented Epping Forest at the fourth annual Lee Valley White Water Centre Schools Festival on July 9.

They were among 500 children from across London, Hertfordshire and Essex who rafted for free.

Chief Executive of Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, Shaun Dawson said: “For many of the youngsters, it’s their first experience of this adrenalin sport and we hope that this will be a springboard to getting into white water sports and becoming the stars of tomorrow.”
