My daughter has attended the summer workshops this week an we came along to the forum today to visit the workshops and attend the finale. Wow - how fantastic. We saw the Knitting produced with needles and fingers and had an amazing description of spinning of wool. We learnt how to Willow Weave and make a bug hotel. We met a group of children who had learnt to publish thier own brochure and another group who had learnt about fair food trade and how to promote healthy eating - and so much more. There was also 2 dances performed - created this week by an amazing group of young children who had never met before. It was the finale for Apex today and as a family we are very sorry to see it end. Both our children have attended Apex workshops and have learnt so much from the. We hope that events of a similar style continue to take place. Phil and I will both be offering our support to BRLSI for their planned events and hope that we can be help to them. Well done to all involved in Apex and congratulations on providing our children with some amazing opportunities. Thank You
