Hi, Cameron here from the UK. I'm having a great time visiting family.

Last week we went to Centre Parcs in Longleat, Wiltshire. Here is a couple of photo of me on a tree climbing adventure:

This is me going down the rapids at the Centre Parc Tropical Paradise and also climbing out of the 10 degree plunge pool:

Here are Rosie and I above a dam up on Dartmoor in Devon:

Looking forward to seeing all you guys in a couple of weeks.

A visiting Artist comes....

Delicia is one of our students mothers. She is a stunning artist who creates amazing things out of paint and sometimes traffic signs. You can see her work here

She talked to us about her art and how she comes up with ideas and we all had a go at creating something out of natural things
