Day 1 update
We arrived in sunny Wales after a very smooth journey. The first challenge of the week was getting the suitcases up the stairs - it was quite the event! Everyone managed and rooms have now been unpacked and organised.
When we first arrived, the children ate lunch and then they were given a briefing about how things work at Woodlands. After a quick turn around, all groups met their instructors outside for some team building activities. There was some fantastic cooperation and problem solving skills on display. We were blessed with beautiful sunshine too!
Once these were completed, the children were kitted out for the week and then had time to arrange their rooms (some interesting wrestling took place with bedsheets and duvet covers but all beds are now made).
The children are due to meet before dinner shortly and then, after our meal we will be heading outside for a night walk.
To quote one student already 'Woodlands is the best and it is only day one!"

Day 2 morning update
A great first night - no tears just lots of tired smiles. After a fabulous night walk followed by cake (thank you so much parents) the children settled well and had a good first night. Looking forward to a day of low and high ropes including the climbing wall.
