Good morning from Robinwood!
As you can see from the picture Robinwood has received a little snow, about 2cm. The children are of course very excited and about to make a start on the activities (Valley group start the day in the canoe pond…. brrr!).
The weather looks fine for the day and we are still looking good on our ETA of 4pm today.
After a peaceful night and hearty breakfast we began our day’s activities. With Lake group breaking the ice on the canoe pond, Valley group braving the Piranha Pool and Stream group whizzing through the tree tops on the zip wire, the children continued to impress us all with their team work, communication and enthusiasm.
Fortunately the snow has held off so far and hasn’t affected any of the sessions, with just a light dusting before bed. The forecast for tomorrow looks good and shouldn’t impact on our journey home or our ETA of 4pm.
Apologies for the lack of pictures, this has been due to the low speeds of internet access here. We plan to upload on our return.
What a fantastic day we have had! We arrived safe and sound this afternoon and enjoyed a well deserved lunch. The weather has been very kind to us with no rain but it is cold here!
The pupils have thrown themselves at the three activities planned for the afternoon and did us all proud with their attitude and behaviour. They will all sleep very well tonight having headed of to bed yawning widely.
Bring on day 2!
