Good morning all,

We have woken to another fine, bright day with the promise of another range of exciting activities today. The coaches are ready for us – we have 6 great drivers who have become like additional staff members during the week and really part of the team which is another ingredient of a successful residential.

Breakfast is ready and waiting and the children are enjoying selecting from croissant, pain au chocolat, ham & cheese, compot & fruit, French breads & jams, cereals, milk, juice and hot chocolate to name but a few. Some plates are piled high, to set them up for the busy days ahead!

We will make our own packed lunches today, so children are able to select a variety of options to include in their lunch bags to be stowed away in cool bags for later.

Our 22 staff are all in great form too! With everyone working so closely together, sharing responsibility with such good spirit and humour, the atmosphere for all is harmonious and upbeat.

We are keeping fingers crossed that some rain heading this way later will hold off to enable us to have the eagerly anticipated barbecue tonight – our final night at the chateau! Hard to believe – it has gone SO quickly!!
