I would arrive at work and talk to the manager about the plans for the day, this would depend on which children we were looking after and what the weather conditions were on that day. Activities included horse riding, reading and playing team games.
The hardest part of the job was gaining respect of the young boys as a female.
The most enjoyable part was involving myself with the children when playing team games and having general conversations with them.
I learnt throughout this job, how lucky I was to have a fortunate upbringing as most of the children were in foster homes.
