On March 18th our P6 pupils went on a residential field trip to Ardentinny Outdoor Centre on the shores of Loch Long. They were joined by pupils from Drymen, Fintry and Buchlyvie Primary Schools. This was part of a transition programme, allowing pupils to meet those who will join them at High School in just over a year! The teams were mixed between the school groups allowing them to form new friendships and to get to know each other better. Activities on offer included; canoeing, rock climbing and abseiling, team challenges, archery and orienteering, gorge walking and rock hopping!
The mix of activities allowed pupils to experience challenge in a supported way and all were very tired after a day of packed activities with lights out by 10pm. The chef commented on how well the group enjoyed their meals-many going for second helpings! The pupils managed to survive the week without phones and their usual technology and so were appreciative of their home comforts when they arrived safely back on the Friday.
