The weather was kind and the children were amazing during our overnight trip to Castle Head Field Centre. For many this was the first time away from home, not that you'd notice as they participated enthusiastically in every wonderful activity the centre offered. The children's most impressive skill was the way they helped and encouraged each other, every step of the way. This is what we are all about at Hawes Side Academy and we see it everyday in lessons but it was even more special seeing it on an obstacle course, when building dens and on canoe trips. The children learned lots and grew as individuals this weekend and we are sure this is an experience that they will keep with them forever. Thanks goes to all the amazing children involved, their families and the staff that led the trip.
