Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Monday 19th

Well the end of our residential weekend has finally arrived but fear not – a jam packed morning greeted us! We celebrated another birthday today – Mrs Forman’s – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Mr Dockrell and Mrs Murphy took great pleasure in knocking on our cabin doors this morning (6:45am) and we’re sure that this was revenge. Luke was meeting us at 7:30 and we had to have our bags packed, beds stripped down and bins emptied in order for the PGL staff to get our cabins ready for the next group arriving.

Following breakfast, we all helped take bags and equipment into the main activity hall before heading off to our morning activities. All groups had archery this morning (well done to Cameron for getting a double bulls-eye) and some of us had the giant swing and Aeroball.  We’ve really enjoyed watching the video that Mr Dockrell has of Mrs Murphy on the giant swing and are sure that her scream could be heard at the other side of the centre.

In order for us to make our ferry we had to quickly eat our pizza and salad before getting the coach loaded and ready to go. Our air conditioned coach was welcomed with open arms as we set off on our journey home.

Again, we enjoyed being out on the sun deck on the ferry and talking about our adventures. Once back on the road we sang some of our new ‘repeat after me songs’ before most of us settled down for a sleep, allowing the teachers and driver to have a quieter journey home!

We’re really looking forward to sharing our adventure with you all and talking about our new experiences (along with an early night’s sleep ready for school tomorrow).


Thank you for a great residential weekend!
