Having known for some time that their penultimate day at primary school was going to be a mystery trip, the children did very well not asking what it was – until we started on our journey on three different kinds of transport and the near end of the Central Line.

“I know, we’re off to Westfield”, “no – Epping Forest”. Hehe!

The fact is that some children knew when we arrived at Theydon Bois and they knew what is there – Mayhem – Laser Tag!

The anticipation as we waited for the van to take us to the centre was palpable and the look on eleven excited faces when they read the logo on the side of the van was priceless.

They all were brilliant during the trip and got into the challenges with the usual verve and enthusiasm we have become very used to with these wonderful children.

Suffice it to say that we are going to miss them terribly, but it has been invaluable to have spend this time enjoying their company together for one last time.
