They think it's all over .... Well it is, nearly!

Our fabulous expedition is all but over.  As you can see from the photos, the children had a really great time on the beach tonight and we could really have stayed much longer but for cases to be packed and showers to be taken.  

We got some funny looks as we headed to dinner tonight in our Hawaiian costumes but our children loved it all, especially the boys!  I think that we might be the only school that brings buckets and spades and heads off for fun on the beach in the evening but it is so important for the children to get the opportunity to be together, having really innocent fun.  When will they get another chance in their lives to do that with 51 of their friends? Just a terrific experience for them all!

Enjoy the final video (it is very slowly uploading so could be a while!) ~ a little piece of history for this group of children and a lovely way for them to end their time at OLOR together.   Look forward to seeing them tomorrow but please may I ask that before you rush them home, turn them around to say a massive thank you to the four wonderful adults who have taken such care of them this week.

  4. Just sat there crying watching every single kid having a fantastic time. A little sad that there week is over for them but so so happy to see Josh in a few hours. Mr Geeson I am very happy to see you finally dancing in the video lol. Every single day I've checked the blog for updates. Most of the these lovely kids we have known since Reception and to see them now in Year 6 on the school trip, having such an amazing time is heart warming. Thank you to everyone who helped arrange and facilitate this experience for them. Hopefully this will be a life long memory for them all.

    Yay Josh is coming home soon xx
