Grade 4 Expedition

Day 1

We have arrived and set up camp

Hello Parents,

We had a great journey to the retreat today with no queues at the checkpoint and two lovely coach drivers plus guides to ease us through the traffic to the retreat. We stopped at the pineapple factory along the way and each child planted a pineapple sucker and learned about seed propogation. They classified pineapples ready for sale and then tasted some top grade samples. They have a gift of a pineapple for you on Friday.

We arrived at the centre in time for a hamburger lunch and an afternoon of team building games with the retreat centre team. There were lots of balloons and some cooling off with the water hose game.

After our dinner this evening the children calmed down with Mr Dalgarno's Amazing Expedition Quiz, congratulations to the 'Sprinkles' who sealed their victory by naming 28 virtues in just 2 minutes.

All the children are now in bed and asleep.

We are looking forward to a number of activities on land and a half day kayaking adventure tomorrow.

The night shift team are here now but it's pretty quiet, a good time to catch up with our newsletter to you.

All the children are very happy and have settled well into their rooms, there has been much laughter today and they are very much looking forward to tomorrow.

Have a good night,

The Expedition Team.
