"And now, the end is near...my friend,I'll say it clear... I did it my way!" As it appears I can only speak in song quotes..." I did it my way !" was definitely how all of you attempted the challenges of Braeside.
What a truely wonderful bunch of children you are! You gave this week such a lot of energy. Each of you handled your own challenges and faced collective problems that will have helped you grow as individuals and as a class. Each and every one of you pushed yourself out of your own personal comfort zone and supported others as they did the same. The learning that you did this week will benefit you for life. I have so many highlights, as I am sure do you, and it will take us all of next week to process all that we learnt... roll on Monday!
I could easily spend spend the next hour singing each of your individual praises ( I will spend the next year doing that!) but for now massive congratulations go to our Braeside boy- Harry F, who shared his endless practical skills with both pupils and staff by communicating and explaining rather than taking over... "You have a go at this; I've had the chance before." Is a direct quote from this remarkable lad that saved so many from the jaws of the mud swamp, who incedently is now nicknamed 'Hero Harry'.
And also our Braeside Girl- Maddie. Her endless encouragement of others and perpetual chatter and smile kept everyone's spirits high even during 9mile hikes/ mud slides/ tired arms and frustrations with boats etc etc. She was always quick to spot other people's achievement and to offer sincere praise.
Thanks also to the awesome team of staff who came in shifts( Miss Purchase, Mrs Carter, Mrs Thornhill, Mrs Bravery, Mr Sainsbury, Mrs Champion and Mrs Baker); may they all have restful weekends!
Sleep well everyone and remember YOU need to help your families wash that stinky kit! I hope that you enjoy the photos- sorry there are so many but you were just so awesome that I had to try and capture it all!
We are very very very sorry! Our night line may have got a TINY bit muddier than we expected!! We did do a practise run in the light and it was all fine... however we created a lot of mud in the dark and it all got a bit slippery! The children were brilliant and demonstrated real resilience and team work- what this week is all about. We apologise for the state of their clothes that will be coming home- please be PROUD of them,not cross!
