On this residential visit we have a minimum ratio of one adult to every ten children. Our staff lead all of the activities during the visit and are, of course, always on hand for pastoral care.
The children sleep in separate rooms for boys and girls. Greswold staff sleep close by and children are made aware what to do if they have a problem during the night. We will have excusive access to Conwy Youth Hostel, meaning we will be the only visitors at the time of our stay.
The children eat their meals together as a group. In the morning, they will have the choice of a cooked breakfast or cereal. For lunch, there is a choice of sandwiches and a hot meal is available in the evening. Arrangements can be made for vegetarians or children with other specific dietary requirements.
The following activities is just a taster of what the children will experience whilst away in Wales:
- Visiting Conwy Castle
- Exploring Llandudno town centre, along with the pier
- Walking along the beach to discover coastal defences, whilst having the opportunity to play on the beach
All of the above are to link in to our topic back at school where the children will get a real-life experience and will then be able to apply it to their learning both prior and after their visit.
- Team building day
- The children will also have a day where they will have to complete activities based on team building skills. These activities will be run by the accommodation centre but will be supervised by Greswold staff.
