Ullswater Residential Year 8 2018

Year 8 enjoyed a challenging and diverse experience last week during residential in Ullswater. 

Here are some photos taken during the week:

Ullswater Residential 2018

Cold? Wet? Tiring? All of the above but what a pleasure it was to be there. The Year 8 students were a credit to the school, pushing themselves beyond their limits to demonstrate Growth
Mindset in action. Whether it was wading fully-clothed through a lake, frantically finding a foothole in a sheer rock face, sharing marshmallows around a campfire or waking up in a frozen tent we all had the opportunities to find new skills and achieve what, previously, may have been considered

What impressed me most was the way in which students helped each other, overcoming difficulties and supporting one another through a variety of testing times. I hope that the friendships formed through the bonds which were created can last a lifetime. I will never forget what was a phenomenal experience and I would like to thank the students and staff, all of whom joined in whole-heartedly in making the most of the great outdoors.

Ullswater Prayer

This residential is full of beauty and adventure,
help me Lord to be fully alive to it all.
During this week, may we become more thoughtful people, more prayerful, generous and kind
When Friday comes, may we look back on the week with no regrets
Make it be a week in which we grow a little more like your Son, and gentle as Mary His Mother.
