Throughout the trip, the children were encouraged to be reflective and think about other children who stood out to them for various reasons; 'Superstars of the Week'.  These include:

Eve C: Tabitha because she tried to do everything and seemed to overcome a fear of heights.

Lily: Eve went on all of the high things even though she is scared of heights.

Zak L: Samson tried everything and just got stuck in and had fun.

Josh: Thomas H was really kind and helpful especially during the climbing when he told everyone where to put their feet on the abseil and encouraged them.

Wilf: My superstar is Elliot because he cheered me up and looked after me.

Fred: My star is Lily because she was always willing to do everything.
