Monday 19th Oct 2015
We arrived in Overstrand at 11.30am. After a quick site orientation, we ate lunch then settled into our dorms. We then enjoyed our first two activities, even though it was quite chilly as the sun began to set…..
Unfortunately, due to bad network signal, the school mobile is not working. The emergency number for Kingswood is 07971969202.
Good morning! It is a bright day today. Boys didn’t sleep too badly but a lot of girls were up until 3am. Miss Styles and Mrs Ramet have the privilege of being downstairs in the girls quarters whilst the other staff are enjoying the luxury of the historic Overstrand Hall house!
The girls dormitories:

We’ve had a lovely sunny day enjoying a variety of activities. We’ve now had dinner and are just off to our evening entertainment – scrapheap challenge.
Unfortunately, it’s been raining all night and still drizzling so wellies and raincoats today. Thankfully, the girls slept soundly.
We had a surprise visit from our chair of governors, Mrs Kemzura (without her waterproofs!).
Then it brightened up for the afternoon and we enjoyed more activities. But we’re all pretty muddy.
After dinner we have Hot Spots this evening.
A good night’s sleep but children (and staff) are becoming quite exhausted from the hectic timetable and fresh air. We’re all off to the beach for the morning and luckily the weather seems quite mild.
Camp fire this evening.
We are still anticipating leaving after lunch at 1pm. As soon as I re-gain a mobile network signal I will text message with an exact eta.
It is really chilly this morning but everyone is in high spirits. We’re packed and enjoying the final two activities.
