In August our staff members Chloe, Connor and Demi took 24 of our SYP juniors on a fabulous residential trip to Dukeshouse Wood in Hexham. The children who went on this trip fundraised money towards the cost of this trip by taking part in various sponsored activities, from a sponsored walk, a sponsored sit still and even a sponsored silence - which if you know our SYP juniors, was quite the challenge for our little chatterboxes!
On the residential the children took part in various activities. They faced their fears and challenged themselves to take part in high ropes, the 3G swing, archery, aeroball and much more.
As well as being lots of fun these activities were chosen to meet personal outcomes, such as resilience, confidence, problem solving, team building and communication.
All the children put aside their fears, put on a harness and totally bossed these activities and we could not be proud of every single one of them. We can't wait to go back again next year!
