Hilltop Residential- Update One

Morning everyone from a rather windy Hilltop! We had a brilliant first day yesterday.  We arrived after a very smooth journey about 9.30. Settled into our rooms and then met in the games room for our introductory talk. We met our course directors (Dayna and Aaron) and then we went for a tour of Hilltop. We then split into two groups for Team Tasks.

Lunch was lovely. We had jacket potatoes and a variety of fillings - Mr Irons really enjoyed the food!  Then we got our waterproofs on and met on the decking. Group 1 had Crates and Archery, Group 2 had Tree Top Trail (which had to be changed from High Ropes due to the weather) and my group had Super Swing!  The activities were brilliant and then.... the snow came! It was rather cold but nobody complained. The children have all been amazing and all had a great time.

We then had hot chocolate to warm ourselves up. Dinner was delicious! Sausage, chips and beans and went down a treat.

Mr Mason and Mr Bushell opened tuck shop and everyone got ready to go outside for Owls and Mice. They had a brilliant time and then went back to their rooms for an early night.

We can’t wait for today’s activities!

We will be back with the next update soon!
