Update - they have arrived at PGL - the message was very sunny and very happy - so all is well. If we get a photo sent this evening we will post it on here. Please relax - your children are having a lovely time!


Latest message from PGL: We've had a great day - very active and very hot! The kids are playing capture the flag now and then we're hoping they'll all be tired enough for bed!!

Here are a couple of photos to prove that we didn't lose any of them on the way!!

Tuesday's News from PGL 
Wow, what a day! The kids have pushed themselves out of their comfort zones and have had a jam packed day - we're all very proud of them.  Mrs Stephenson brought Mrs Velasco up for the rest of the week and joined us for some of the afternoon activities! Mrs Attenborough has just left for home and the kids are off to do some orienteering. Here's the first batch of emails for you to enjoy...

Thursday's posting from PGL - with apologies for the lateness!

Their last night away and they will be back tomorrow afternoon, around 4.30pm but we will advise you of their eta nearer the time.

We've had another brilliant day - the kids have relaxed into the routine and are enjoying spending time all together! Here are the final emails... 

I am having an amazing time here.  There isn't one thing I haven't tried! Abseiling was brilliant!! I love it! I did the Giant Swing and I was scared. I thought I was going to the middle but the leader, Tristan, tricked me and I actually swung from the top!! 
Miss Rogers, Miss Gordon, Mr Pugh, Mr Kram, Mrs Velasco and Mrs Field are all so supportive and so lovely. 
Can't wait to come home but also love it here! Say hi to B for me, 
Love you all 

To mum, dad and family, 
I miss you all so much every single day! I've been on a lot of high activities such as giant swing, vertical challenge and all aboard.  I had the best time ever but I wish you guys were here with me. 
Love Malak 
P.s. please take care of yourselves 


PGL is really fun but sometimes you’re too tired to do anything. I’m sharing a dorm with Malak, Scarlett and Alessia. Giant swing was the best one but I really wanted another turn on the high ropes because I didn’t complete it and now I regret it. Right now we are playing football and I’m getting better. I really enjoy it.

The disco was awesome. I danced a lot and on the giant swing, I screamed a lot- I think I burst Scarlett’s eardrums! It’s was very funny on All Aboard. I cried because I couldn’t stay on and clung on to Lucy for dear life. I love you sooooo much and miss you lots.

From Ben B 

To Mum, Dad and Pitou, 
I’m having such a good time, the weather is so nice and I’ve been able do such great things. The disco was so cool. I hoped that Pan Pan is ok and that everything at home is good. The high ropes was scary and high, everything else was nice but a bit scary. I’m in a room with Alice, Jessica, Katie, Julia and Ella. The giant swing was so fast and high. I loved aeroball.  
See you soon  


To Mum and Dad 

I have a room with Josh W, Josh L, George, Ben B, Zak. I have done everything. My favourite was giant swing.  

James D  

To Mummy and Daddy, 

I hope you are cool, I am also. I went on a really tall swing and it was really scary. I also climbed to the top of a tall, thin, wobbly pole with Maddi and Sophie, then I fell off, but I was in a harness, so I am ok. The Saudi Arabia football game sounds good, I hope you enjoy it. The disco was really fun and I bought two pick and mixes with my money (and a bouncy ball) I wanted a teddy but I didn’t get it.  

Love from
