Year 7 Residential Trip
On the first day of the trip, our Y7s demonstrated their resilience to make it to the summit of Moel Siabod in the glorious sunshine. The weather was roasting (as the photos demonstrate!) and the children had to persevere and push themselves to conquer the mountain which resulted in smiles all round!
On return to our base, we decided a dip in the lake was called for and highly deserved after their hard work. This was a fun and refreshing treat to celebrate the end of their walk and cool them down for their evening activity of orienteering.
Later on, half the group went to gorge scramble and the other half took part in paddle sports and wall climbing.
On Wednesday, we had another action packed day in sunny North Wales. Groups 1 and 2 got stuck into a full day of gorge scrambling, exploring local rivers and caves by getting waist deep in freezing water! They then completed the low ropes course in the afternoon developing their team work and communication through a series of fun group challenges.
Groups 3 and 4 spent the entire morning paddle boarding on the lake in glorious conditions followed by an afternoon climbing some incredibly challenging rock faces. The days excitement didn’t end there with both groups coming together to take part in an evening activity of abseiling before settling down to bed.
It was wonderful to see both groups impressing their instructors yesterday and receiving compliments on their positivity and willingness to give everything a go, even when feeling pretty exhausted after our mountain climb the day before!
