This year we had another very successful school journey with Key Stage 4 students to Woodlarks Campsite in Farnham. This is a fantastic provision and a great opportunity for our students to experience the outdoors and nature on a very safe and accessible site. This campsite is designed to provide holidays and respite for children and adults with disabilities so the arrangements to meet access needs were brilliant.
We had to organise our own activities and plan and cook our own meals. Luckily for us one of our parent
governors Paul Thirkettle is a trained chef and he agreed to volunteer to be our cook for the three days.
Needless to say we did not go hungry.
The weather was very good and we were able to use our forest school skills which included bird watching,
orienteering and building a fire Thanks to James and his guitar we also had plenty of songs to sing around the camp fire when it was lit. Everyone had a great time but we couldn’t do it without the staff, parents and governors who volunteer their own time to make school journeys happen. Many thanks to Fiona, Katie, Brenda, Donna, Lynne, James, Sarah, Darren and Paul.
