Resilience to Achieve - Aspiration to Succeed

For our final day of activities we all headed out to canoe together on the canal. We were successful in picking up the skills very quickly. The instructors and teachers were very impressed with how we worked together. After some canoeing along the river, we played some games and then had the opportunity to slide off the canoe into the water.


In the evening, instead of using the ropes course, we went into the climbing room and played some different games after we packed our bags for the journey home.


Before bed, we had a long chat about all the things we have achieved this week. Some people were proud of how they faced their fears, some were proud of how they discovered new foods they liked, some were proud of the fact they stayed away from home for the first time, some were proud of how well they got on with other children and some were proud of how they survived without electronic devices. Overall, we have reflected on our time at Trewern and we have thought about how we may change some of our behaviours when we get back home. It seems many of us are willing to try and cut down on our dependence on phones and video games and start getting outdoors more.
