Yesterday we woke to the sun shining outside. After a breakfast of cereal, rolls and bacon it was off to our meet our group leaders to hear what we needed for the day ahead. Continue reading “Lagganlia Camp Thursday Update”
So the children all slept well last night, so all good! The staff well…sleeping in a bunk bed was a new experience form some of them!
They were offered a breakfast of cereal, toast and a hot roll. Then it was time to collect their items for packed lunches and set off to meet their group for their activities.
So after a quick lunch in the lunch hall it was off to find their lodges and more importantly to ‘bag’ the top or bottom bunk. Then the challenge was to put the duvet cover and pillow case on…some of the children found this a challenge! In pairs they managed to put the sheets on mattresses (although some where inside out!) then they unpacked.
Later the children met their group leaders, agreed some group rules and chatted about shared expectations for the week. Then it was some free time… the children set off to explore Lagganlia grounds, play and catch up with their friends.
After a home cooked dinner, the children had a scavenger hunt. All too soon… (for the children)…it was time to get ready for bed, and time, to eventually get to sleep!
What will tomorrow bring?
I am able to confirm we will welcome back our children and staff to school on Monday 5 March. I would like to thank our Janitor (Graham), all the parents, carers and volunteers who braved the cold, to support our ‘Hermie Snow Party’! What a fantastic team spirit was demonstrated, as we shovelled and cleared the snow. This effort was very much appreciated.
