School Journey-Day 2. Well done Victory and Ruth for getting stars of the day. Some of us had a super early start today before taking part in 3G swing, blind trail, obstacle challenge, abseiling and climbing. We ended the evening with a campfire. Lots of us today have pushed ourselves and tried to overcome our fears. We have shown great support to each other and good teamwork. Everyone was very tired by the end of the day so fingers crossed a long nights sleep. There are so many pictures we have taken, here are just a selection until we are back to show you.

School Journey- Day 1. We arrived safely and have had a hot and busy afternoon. Our first activity was problem solving and then this evening we took part in mini olympics.
