Calshot Day One!

22/01/2018

Day 1 at Calshot

We arrived - feels like a long time ago! When we arrived the sun was shining  - let's hope it continues!

We have very quickly got ourselves organised and sorted into our bedrooms, it's always nice to find out who were are sharing with! This year some of us are in Lawrence House whilst others are in Mitchell House .  

To begin with today we have had groups doing various activities including initiative course, first ski lesson, low ropes course, climbed the walls here (that's the pupils and not the staff!) and had our first archery lesson. During the evening some of us will be doing 'egg drop', others will be doing 'rushing rockets' and the other groups will be taking part in a competition evening. (We are arranged into 9 groups and we rotate around the different activities - by the end of the week we will have all done everything!)

We have even had a birthday - our first one for our first day at Calshot! We all wish Mr Keeble a VERY happy birthday!  

There are some photographs below but please be aware that the wifi strength here at Calshot is not as strong as at school. Therefore it can take quite a while for our photos to upload. If you are able to keep checking back you are likely to see more photos as they will keep uploading. 

We've had a lovely lunch and dinner and everyone has done absolutely brilliantly! There are already lots of reasons to be proud of lots of Portway children and staff. 

We'll try to add photos throughout the week and also update our Twitter and Facebook accounts when we get a moment. We try to include everyone but with 87 of us it is not easy!
