Ullswater Residential Year 8 2019

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

Here are some photos taken during the week:

Ullswater Residential 2019
“The residential to Ullswater was a hugely successful trip. The students were able to participate in a wide range of activities and many achieved feats that they did not think possible: from conquering fear of heights to pushing themselves to complete challenges on, in and around the lake. It was inspiring to see so many pupils stepping out of their personal comfort zones and really growing as individuals.

As a result, students will receive their John Muir Award in their forms before the end of this term. It was also very rewarding for the staff accompanying the students to be able to spend time with them, getting to know them in a different context and to hear such positive comments from the instructors and centre staff about our students’ positivity, enthusiasm and personal growth. We were also blessed with fantastic weather.”
— Mrs M Hayes, Student Progress Leader Year 8

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.

Amen
