It has been an excellent start to our children’s time at PGL where day one kicked off with four fun activities:

  1. Buggy Build – where children used a range of materials and rope to create a buggy that they could pull down a hill.
  2. Aeroball – Trampolining with a difference! A combination of basketball and trampolining. This got their pulses racing!
  3. Archery – A PGL classic and great for aim and discipline.
  4. Quad Biking – Steering these vehicles around a track with increased accuracy.

In the evening, the children enjoyed a campfire and sang silly songs and hear spooky stories before heading home for bed.

The children were incredible at bedtime – they fell asleep early and were impeccably behaved. They mostly woke up within the 5th hour the next day, but that was to be expected!

On day two, we hiked – for a good three hours taking in some spectacular views and in the afternoon we continued with the aforementioned activities and added fencing to the mix. Amazing!

The final day was more subdued after the busyness of day 2 and the children were a bit drained. They enjoyed the remainder of the activities they hadn’t done yet and the final activity was called Survivor where they learned the basic skills of survival.

Overall it was a fantastic residential and the children were excellently behaved and a credit to their families and Rosemary Works School. All photos are added now, but stay tuned next week for PGL Marchants Hill the Movie!

Huge thanks to Suzy, Ross and Joe for caring for the children with such dedication.
