North Wales 2017

Hello everyone.  It's Mrs T here again with an update from the day.  The children have had another really busy day, kayaking, climbing and gorging.  They are currently at the cinema - although I imagine there are lots of tired eyes watching the film! Everyone is in good spirits and looking forward to a very different adventure tomorrow. 

Hi everyone - Mrs T here again!  After a busy day of climbing we are very proud to report that all of the children safely reached the top of Snowdon today.  As you can see below we have some pictures of our brave conquerors - apologies for the lack of photos of one of the groups - technology is really not being cooperative with us at the moment!  After such an eventful day the group are now dry slope skiing - and having an amazing time I am sure.   Tomorrow will see them carrying on with their outdoor activities - either kayaking and climbing or gorging. 
Thank you all for your comments and emails.  We will update as soon as we have some more pictures to share!


Another update - some photos of the children enjoying the walls at the climbing centre this evening!  Simon would be very proud! Weather permitting the group are planning to climb Snowdon tomorrow - we will keep you updated!




Hello again everyone - Mrs T here with some photos from the past two days.  Technology has been kind and allowed us to get some photographs of the group who went gorging today.  As you can see everyone is having a great time and enjoying the challenging activities.  While one group have been gorging today, the other group have had fun kayaking and climbing outdoors.  At the moment we are not able to get any photos from the kayaking group - fingers crossed!!   As soon as we have more photos to share I will update again.

Hopefully tomorrow or Thursday will see the group climbing Snowdon - I am sure we will be able to share lots of happy smiling faces at the summit!

If anyone is having problems leaving a comment please feel free to send it to, and I will upload them for you.




Hello everyone.  Mrs T here with a quick update.  I've 'borrowed' this picture of the hostel from a previous year, as unfortunately technology has not allowed the sending of any pictures yet.  We heard from the group earlier and they were on the way to the hostel following a fantastic day in the Black Country Museum.  They were expecting to arrive at the hostel at around 7pm, so I imagine they have just enjoyed a hearty dinner!

The children are all in very good spirits - and looking forward to the adventures to come this week. 
As soon as we manage to get some pictures sent across I will update the page.
