We have finally arrived! We've had our lunch and have just met all of the different artists that we will be working with over the week. First session breakers getting to know the other children on the course.

14:45: Ice breakers all done with, now into our first workshops! 

18:15: First session completed and children have had a great time so far working with all of the different people and children from other schools.

Tea tonight was a choice of: bacon chop, chicken curry, bacon pasta bake, veg curry, chips, rice, peas, salad, chocolate angel delight, muffin, yoghurt and fruit! Pretty safe to say there are 35 people very well fed! Off outside for a quick run around before our evening workshops.



End of day 1 and a great amount completed by everyone! We have all worked hard in the different workshops and have already had lots of new experiences including the staff! 

We had a good run around outside tonight after our evening workshops and I can happily report that all of the boys were asleep by 10:40 and all of the girls asleep by 11:15...result!

Good night all! Roll on day 2!


Morning! We have had a succeesful night and are currently tucking into breakfast. Some of us are about to have our henna tattoos with Vina while we wait for our first workshops to begin.



Morning sessions all completed, plenty of new skills learnt by all and lots of fun has been had. We've had a lovely lunch of baguettes filled with either cheese, ham or tuna and some crispy potato wedges. For pudding we had a tough choice between ice cream or calippo ice lollies...decisions decisions! After lunch we outside to explore and have a play in the glorious sunshine! We are now heading into our afternoon sessions. All of the children are doing a great job getting fully involved with everything. 👍 Well done team!



Afternoon sessions completed and the trip to the shop has been achieved by all! Just getting ready for tea now...not sure what's on offer yet but we will let you know!


Everyone well fed once again! The choices tonight were tortellini, spag bol, roast chicken and veggie bolognese with donuts or flapjack for afters. We have had another long play outside in the lovely sunshine playing football and climbing trees! Just getting ready for the puppet show...tonight we are having a tale told us from India...



All asleep! The end of a tiring, non stop day! Our show tonight was called 'The Golden Crown' and we even learnt about some of the tricks and methods for controlling and performing with the puppets themselves. 

All set for our final day tomorrow.


8:20 -

Good morning! So we've survived the final night and have cleared all of the dorms and amazingly there were no rogue socks lying around unclaimed!

We are in our common room at the min just waiting to go up for our breakfast before starting our final workshop session.



We have all performed in our final activity and enjoyed the celebration assembly at the end of the morning. Final meal has been devoured and we are now out for a final wait whilst we wait for the coach!



All done! Just loading onto the coach now, see you all soon!



Well done to everyone this week on our trip. You were all amazing and really got fully involved with all of the activities and gave them a really good go. You represented our school in a superb way and I know all of the artists were impressed with how well you did. Have a great weekend and get plenty of rest ready for next week! 👍
