Cotswold Wildlife Park... #parenthub

We have arrived safely at the Cotswolds Wildlife Park. We have seen some beautiful animals and there has been a variety of animals that some students have not seen before. We stopped for ice creams half way and even got chance to play on the park. We have had a great day and the weather has been very kind to us.

Seaside Adventure - Day 3... #parenthub

Seaside Adventure Day 3 2019

A prompt start to Devil’s Bridge. All aboard a carriage with windows. No chance of losing any pupils as we climbed the steep hill. Spectacular steam, scenery and face to face conversation (Just like it was before social media took over our lives). At the top we gorged ourselves on ice cream. Ice cream always tastes better in Wales! We returned in more style, this time a reserved carriage (someone had a quiet word with the very accommodating guard).

Lunch, no room for dessert! Then we hit the shops and the castle.

We avoided the rain watching the movie Spider-Man: Far from Home. Spellbound pupils were a credit to the school and their families.

Wishing our Year 11 leavers all the best in their bright futures ahead of them.

We are having a fab time come up close with the wild. We have enjoyed seeing the lions and tigers and other animals. We are now facing our fears and going on some big rides. Some students are being very brave. We are so proud of them. They have been amazing.

Seaside Adventure - Day 2... #parenhub

Seaside Adventure Day 2 2019…

The day started with a hearty breakfast. We arrived at King Arthur’s Labyrinth in plenty in time to look around some exotic shops. The labyrinth is a disused slate mine and it did not disappoint. We put on hard hats and travelled on a boat into the mountain. We were guided though the maze of tunnels and were told the stories and legends associated with King Arthur.

After the cold dark tunnels of King Arthur’s Labyrinth we drove to Aberdovey (Aber: estuary, Dovey: the river Dovey). Sea, sun and jelly fish. We sun bathed, paddled and had an amazing lunch. We took over Medina’s Coffee House. Then crab fishing. We caught enough crabs to supply Rick Stein’s restaurant. The crabs were later returned to the sea. Their pride was dented but I’m confident that no crabs were harmed in the process.

We ended the day eating fish and chips overlooking the estuary.

PGL Update Rafting - Day 2... #parenthub

We have finished our first activity, our raft floated like a dream we and managed to paddle around the lake. Mr Ross enjoyed his voyage back to land, but as he was helped off the raft he lost his grip and fell back into the water. Whoops !!!!!
