Dukeshouse Wood Adventure
Phew! 33 very tired, happy people returned from a fabulous weekend at Dukeshouse Wood near Hexham today. Thirty excited children were accompanied by Mrs Downes, Mrs Whitehead and Mr Longstaff. All the children were brave, resilient, smart and worked really collaboratively. The staff saw so many new talents and skills and were , at times, "blown away" by the determination and tenacity of Balliol children. Every single child did something amazing. We saw some astonishing climbing with children balancing on beams over 50 feet high, incredible problem solving and a healthy competitive spirit. Hmmm - need to start planning for next year!
