On Monday 27th November 2017,Â some children from Year 6 set of on an
exciting adventure to Plas Gwynant Outdoor Educational Resort, in the stunning Snowdonia National Park.
For many, this was their first time on a residential, and for some,Â
this was their first time away from home! Nevertheless, they all coped exceptionally well with everything that nature had to throw at them.
All children were involved in daily duties in the centre, whether that be feeding the birds, cleaning the minibus, re-cycling waste, or even hoovering the bedrooms! After breakfast, they made their own lunches, and set off on a wonderful day of action packed activities, such as:
Gorge Walking – climbing up through a mountain gorge and working as a team to traverse waterfalls.
Beach Exploration – on the (surprisingly) sunny beach at Borth-y-Gest, the children did rock climbing, free-running activities, rock pool exploration and had the best iceÂ creams EVER!
Mountaineering – braving the elements (including snow and hail!) the children climbed to the peak of Mynydd Sygun, a near-by mountain, and witnessed stunning views of the local area.
Abseiling – conquering their fears, the children abseiled down the side of a large rock face, and then repeated the feat BLINDFOLDED!!
All-in-all, the trip was a huge success. A special thanks to all of the staff involved in making the residential an enjoyable, memorable experience for everyone who took part.
