Having done the majority of packing on Thursday night, the children got up at the normal time of 7.00am on Friday morning. Bedding had to be left outside each room and then rooms inspected before bags were taken to the lounge. The children did a really good job in packing efficiently and leaving their rooms tidy..
After another big breakfast, the children went off to their activities. With the watersports over for the week, the groups were taking part in trawling, orienteering, shooting, archery, climbing, initiative tests and skiing. Lunch was either a fish filet or fish finger roll with a wide choice of accompaniments.
The afternoon was more of the same before we said our thanks and goodbyes to all the Calshot staff who have been so brilliant throughout the week. We made good progress back to school and arrived at 5.55pm.
From a teacher’s perspective, it was the best of the six trips I’ve been on. The staff, accommodation and food were all fantastic, and the children were challenged throughout the week. Everyone learned something and developed new skills. The children also proved themselves to be tidy, well organised and on time. Here’s to next year!
