The Brooklands pupils took part in Den Day raising money for Save the children. The day was a great success and £55 was raised for the charity. The students looked at the types of houses and shelters children live in across the world in PSHE and designed and made some fantastic indoor and outdoor dens and shelters.

Last week 10 students from Compass Belton, Lingwood and Pot Row went on a residential to the Peak District. Activities included weaselling, rock climbing, a hike up Mam Tor and white water rafting. In the evenings the children had the chance to build friendships with students from other bases whilst playing wide games at Stanton Moor. Other activities included a group water fight and toasting marshmallows around the campfire. The trip was a success for all and it was lovely to see the children come out of their shells and their personalities shine. It was a pleasure to see everyone involved in each activity, especially since some were doing them for the first time. A huge thanks to all the staff involved!
