Lledr Hall Residential

The children have arrived safely at Lledr Hall to glorious weather and a friendly welcome from the staff. They have explored the local area that they will be staying, enjoyed their first meal and had a good night sleep with their friends in their rooms. Today there are lots of exciting activities happening in their groups, but first a hearty breakfast. More photos and news to follow. 


(Please be patient as internet access in the heart of Wales can be variable from Lledr Hall and staff are very busy supporting the children settle in to their stay)

Arrival - Day 1

Day 2- Bouldering and Low Ropes 


Today groups 1 and 3 tested their teamwork, critical thinking and physical agility.


The Low Rope assault course encouraged the children to communicate effectively, problem solve and work as a team to complete the course. It was fabulous to see how pupils were able to encourage and support their friends. 

Compassion, Faith, Wisdom and Community were demonstrated.









The Boulder Climbing  challenged the children physically, testing their strength, balance and climbing technique. It also encouraged the children to take risks, try something new and face their own fears.

Faith, Wisdom and Aspiration were demonstrated by all.











Day 2- Canoeing and Gorge Walking


Today Groups 2 and 4 tested their teamwork, strength, stamina and resilience. They all rose to the challenge!


The children were required to follow a sequence of instructions to prepare themselves and their equipment for the day. They managed to independently dress in their skin tight, wetsuits and wet-boots, as well as check their safety equipment. During canoeing the children communicated clearly, often instructing, encouraging and supporting each other as they prepared the canoes and rowed across the lake.


The children channelled their inner Vikings, as they exceeded all expectations when they rowed against the wind on their return journey across the lake. They  were determined no to let the weather cut their activity short. They demonstrated Faith, Wisdom, Aspiration, Community and Compassion as well as fabulous rowing rhythm!








Gorge Walking challenged the children to navigate upstream, through flowing water, over slippery and jagged rocks and under a waterfall. They were able to slide and dip in the flowing, brisk Welsh water. 

The children demonstrated, Faith, Wisdom, Aspiration, Community and Compassion as well as stamina, resilience and a great sense of humour.















Night 2- Movie Night

Snacks, Sleeping bags and Slumber.


After watching 'The Call of the Wild' and brushing their teeth, the children quickly settled down to sleep. 


Day 3 


Groups 1 and 3 Gorge walking and canoeing

Today Groups 1 and 3 tested their teamwork, stamina and determination all while wearing a wetsuit on the most glorious sunny day. They were very relieved to be able to cool in the brisk Welsh water and even jumped in the lake!


While walking against the flow of the rushing water through the Gorge, the children navigated over slippery rocks and through varying depths of water. They persevered even when the visibility was poor and their footing was precarious.


Not only did the children row across the lake, they also swapped places on the canoes. The children shouted encouragement and suggestions to each other, as they switched places or moved from one canoe to another, all while in motion. Throughout the day, they demonstrated Faith, Wisdom, Aspiration, Community and Compassion as well as Courage and Determination.
