What we’ve been up to…
As we settle in for night 2 at Kingswood, we have shared our favourite moments. So far highlights include: raft building, zip wire and archery (oh and of course the food). We are looking forward to the climbing wall tomorrow. We have had lovely weather for the most part and are all happy and healthy. We will continue to send regular messages through marvellousme. We are looking forward to seeing you all Friday.
Our RRSA steering group has been busy. With UNICEF in mind, they have made a special video for the new school year.

On Tuesday 25 July, we had a whole school picnic in Wollaton Park. We played cricket, football, parachute games, skipping ropes etc. The children particularly enjoyed meeting up with older siblings and other family members. Once again this annual event was a crowd-pleaser. A real sense of community could be felt as everyone came together to sit, chat and share. A big thank you to everyone who gave their time and support.
