"I enjoyed pushing myself to do things that I had never done before.  My favourite thing was going on the zip wire.  I did not want to go at first but my friends pushed me and I did it.  I am really glad that I did!"  

"It was such an adventure. I enjoyed every bit of it and threw myself into all of the activities.  My motto for the residential would be - Don’t think, just do it!" 

"I was frightened at first.  Then I made new friends which made me feel more comfortable.  My teacher was really supportive and fun and all my friends encouraged me when I was frightened.  I enjoyed the residential so much that I wish I could go again."

"I found the residential fun, but challenging. I am not used to staying away from home without my family, but I managed to do it, and made new friends.  I felt tired but also proud that I had done it.  I LOVED all of the activities!"
