Year 10 Soli House

Here are some of the messages the Year 10 students wrote about their recent retreat to Soli in Staffordshire.
"I had the time of my life"
"My experience at Soli was amazing!"
"I made new friends, played hide and seek and got to know people a lot better than before."
"I grew in my faith and became friends with people I would not usually talk to."
"I enjoyed spending time with my friends and people I don't really know"
"I really enjoyed the new activities and prayer time because it was a good opportunity to reflect and become closer to God"
"I enjoyed making friends with people I hardly spoke to and 'The Escape Room' was intense."
"I made friends with people I don't usually speak to.  Just a time to relax and play games."
"This was a great experience and better than I thought it would be!"
"This was great fun and an amazing experience.  I enjoyed it."
" I enjoyed playing with new friends, learning new games and growing in my faith."
"I loved every minute of it!"
The students worked as a team and were amazing.  They threw themselves into the outward bound activities and were even human ducks when playing 'hook a duck' - a wet experience!  Mr Gay and Mrs Ryan gave up their time (and sleep!) to support the children and enable them to have wonderful time whilst the children deepened their faith.  The outdoor Mass was a special experience for everyone and the team at Soli worked tirelessly to make sure everyone had a brilliant time.  We're now planning our next trip!
