Robinwood Residential - November 2015
The year 5 and 6 children who went to Robinwood this year had a fantastic time even though the weather wasn't on our side. It couldn't have been more wet!!!! They all tried every activity despite their fears and worked exceptionally well as a team, building new skills and developing their confidence. Have a look at some of the fun they had.
