Year 5 PGL Residential

Year 5's Trip to PGL Weymouth

We are delighted to provide an overview of Year 5's recent trip to PGL Weymouth. This residential trip was an exceptional experience for our students, where they could embrace outdoor activities, challenge themselves, and exemplify our school's behavioural values.


Fantastic Week:

The Year 5 students had a fantastic week at PGL Weymouth. Their enthusiasm and energy were palpable from the moment they arrived, and it was evident that they were ready for an adventure.

Embracing Water Sports:


One of the trip's highlights was the opportunity to engage in various water sports. Our students fearlessly embraced these activities, enthusiastically taking on new challenges. The sea kayaking and biking boats were well-received, providing an exhilarating experience.


Stepping Out of Their Comfort Zones:

What truly stood out during this trip was our students' willingness to step outside their comfort zones. They faced various physical and mental challenges head-on, demonstrating remarkable resilience and determination throughout the week. Witnessing their growth as they overcame obstacles and pushed their boundaries was heartening.


Alignment with Our Values:

At Mount Stewart, our behaviour values are rooted in the 7R's: Risk-taking, Resilience, Reflection, and forming positive Relationships. This residential trip perfectly encapsulated these values in action. The students displayed a commendable willingness to take risks, persevere through difficulties, reflect on their experiences, and form positive relationships with their peers and instructors.



Staff Encouragement:

We commend our dedicated staff members who played an integral role in fostering this environment of growth and adventure. They encouraged our students to step out of their comfort zones, provided guidance and support when needed, and ensured the safety of all participants. Their commitment to the student's well-being and development was evident throughout the trip.


The Year 5 trip to PGL Weymouth was an outstanding success. Our students had an unforgettable experience filled with excitement, personal growth, and the embodiment of our school's behavioural values. We are immensely proud of their achievements and look forward to more opportunities for them to thrive, take risks, and continue to be exemplary ambassadors of Mount Stewart Residentials.


Thank you to all students and staff who made this trip successful. Your support and enthusiasm are greatly appreciated.
