Action-packed adventure in Wales

Seventy two Second Year pupils enjoyed a sun-filled, action-packed week of exhilarating activities in Wales.

The week at The Outward Bound Trust Aberdovey saw the girls and boys embark on a two day expedition during which they camped by a lake at the foot of a mountain.

The girls and boys were split into different teams and given a route to follow to test their orienteering skills. Challenging walks over rough terrain and with steep climbs to tackle meant the pupils were rightfully proud when they reached their camp spot.

One group set up base for the night at the foot of Cadair Idris and were able to take in the stunning sunset after they pitched their tents.

At the centre, the travelling party were able to enjoy the outdoor facilities on offer including the Jacob’s Ladder climbing frame which required communication and team work.

On the last day, the groups tried their hand at a range of adrenaline-charged activities such as commando crawling and jetty jumps on the pier.

Other teams travelled around the coast and returned via kayak, whilst some used canoes to cross the estuary.

Outdoor Education Co-Ordinator Adam Hughes said: “it was great to see how pupils supported each other, especially during the hot days. They stuck with the mission and they all got a lot out of it.”
