Expected to be home by 3.20pm!


Exhausted but happy. On our way home. Mums, dads and carers, we are so excited to see you. If we’re not in the picture, it’s probably because we’re asleep 💤


Our shelter building skills were amazing. We even made a stable for Mr Senior to park his horse! 🐴

Teamwork makes the dream work


Even when Miss Bryson popped down for the day, she and Miss Melvin braved Jacob’s ladder 🐒


Another afternoon of team building and challenging themselves. We have been so impressed with how the children have conquered their fears and helped each other along the way.
