We are having a fantastic time at Kingswood – Dukeshouse Wood in Hexham this weekend! Year 8 are away with loads of staff on the 2017 Graduation Outward Bound Residential! Despite a very wet and rainy start on Friday night, the sun has been fantastic today on Saturday. Lots of challenging, and slightly scary activities – superb to see confidence growing, support of each other, and beaming smiles replacing some distinctly pale faces beforehand! Well done everyone. More to follow, just wanted to upload some photos! More to follow shortly
Thank you so much to all the staff who have come away for the weekend, and in particular to Mrs Reid, Mrs Boyes and Mrs Wing for leading all the organising and taking charge. It has been brilliant. Staff helpers at the weekend have been superb too (and check out the ‘suntanned’ faces on Monday: Miss Atkinson, Mr Collins, Mr Smith, Miss Heason-Phillips, Mr Haugh, Miss McGee, Miss Kaya, Miss Gates and Mr Wappat.
