For our last week in Everest we have had lots of exciting things happening. First of all we must welcome Mr McGarvey our newest member of the Everest Team, the boys have warmed to him straight away as they know him well from the main school and are really enjoying doing forest school with him, they are learning lots of new skills.
We had an incredible final Equine Therapy session (even if the weather wasn’t particularly in our favour). All three of the boys got their horses tacked up and Charlie even had a horse change. His new horse was called Murphy which very quickly became “Eddie Murphy”. Lee got on Kai first and was sat patiently waiting for the other two to mount their steeds. We then had to get Charlie on his massive horse which turned out to be quite a big task. Cobie then flew on and we were off out for a hack around the beautiful village of Minchinhampton. We went off for a good hour all three of them had a go at trotting, Lee is also learning how to do rising trot. When we got back the three boys turned their horses out into their paddocks.
We have also had an amazing crafty week making lots of things ready for Mr Evans’ leaving bash on Thursday and Friday. The boys have been amazing and have channeled their inner artist. They have been really good at keeping the secrets from Mr Evans (Miss Adams not so much).
On Thursday we managed to find some time to take the boys out for an afternoon of tea and cake in a local café. They all behaved impeccably and managed to fit in quite a lot of cake. The boys gave Mr Evans some gifts for him to take home as a memento to remember them by. They boys all represented the school impeccably.

We also finally finished our heads this week and they are now in prize position in Everest. Every visitor that entered Everest this week has been very impressed by them. Miss Jones was particularly pleased.
Finally, the boys would all like to wish Mr Evans the best of luck on his course next year. They have all expressed how sad they are about him leaving this week. They have worked really hard with Miss Adams and Mr McGarvey to make his few days left as fun as possible. Mr Evans will be sorely missed in Everest and in the main school…. Maybe not his beard though!
