After 2 years away and in autumn for the first time, we welcomed Monteagle School back to Trewern last week. A week of climbing, bushcraft, mountain walks, tunnel challenge and gorge walking was enjoyed by all, with orienteering, night walk with star gazing and a candle challenge from the visiting staff (a new one for us, we may be nicking the idea…!) to occupy them in the evening. A fab week of the children working on independence, teamwork (especially with new people) and pushing their comfort zone. New friendships developed and everyone surprised themselves in some way with some fantastic memories to take with them. Great progress was made by all and the children can be proud of what they achieved together. Well done!
