The Ark went on its first residential last week to Calvert Trust on the edge of Exmoor for a range of outdoor pursuits and challenges. The students and staff at RLS, parents, local community shops and businesses have all worked very hard in raising money to enable our students to access and enjoy this unique opportunity. A huge thank you to all as the students had a brilliant time experiencing new challenges and adventures. Highlights include whizzing down the zip wire, overcoming fear of heights on the abseiling, handling a skunk and a snake (the local Zoo came to visit!), lighting a fire without a match along with the fun of being away from home for the first time for many. All the students gained new confidence, experiences, life skills and memories of a great time away - they are asking when we can go again!!
