2020 Calshot Day 4!
THURSDAY PM: We have put together another video of some of the Ringo fun going on! It was a bit rushed as the video didn’t work so have quickly put another one together. We hope you like it!
Thursday morning. About 6:45 am :-)
And so day 4 dawns here at Calshot 2020. Had a quick look outside and it is cold but dry, which is great news! The forecast says there is a chance of a light drizzle later but hopefully it will stay dry.
We had a really good day yesterday and last night we shared some of the great achievements of the day. Actually it got quite emotional as this year the pupils have been so supportive of each other and shown what truly amazing young people they are! The teamwork and friendship shown by the pupils has been very impressive - and we are VERY proud of them all. For some pupil the challenge might be climbing a wall or abseiling but for others it is missing family & home. As the week progresses everyone gets quite tired. We really are in the go from early morning until bedtime and that is a physical, as well as a mental, challenge. It is also been great for pupils to have no TV, internet, video games or mobile phones throughout the week - another challenge for some!
We have also been very proud of our ‘fussy eaters’ this week - all have them have tried new things and all have eaten well. Another Calshot challenge!
We hope you have enjoyed looking at the photographs. We do try and get a range but it is a challenging job - especially as the wifi is only available in a small area. With 76 pupils to look after it is never easy to make sure we have photos of them all.
Hopefully there will be some more photographs later today. We finish off today with the big Portway quiz evening, which should be lots of fun! Tomorrow we have a full morning of activities and we plan to be back at school at around 2:45. If parents could wait in the main hall then we will bring the pupils to you. The bags will be unloaded off of the coach onto the path and then they can be collected from there.
Many thanks for allowing us to take your sons and daughters away with us this week. They have done you proud!
PS We also have a birthday today - many happy returns Riley!
Some more photographs should appear below during the day!
