I have just returned home from my visit to Castlerigg with my school . I just wanted to say how thankful I am to all the staff that made our stay so wonderful, I have loved it so much and have cherished the amazing week that I have embarked on.
The team involved in our trip were truly inspirational and made our stay so exciting and meaningful, it was so great to listen to their stories and learn how they have grown in their faith.
This week I have felt so much closer to God and completely spiritually renewed, I have learned more about myself and others in a way that I never thought was possible.
