‘Our week of action’
Trip was full of activities
Excited primary seven pupils from Woodside Primary travelled to Lockerbie Manor for their annual residential trip.
All 52 of the children participated in loads of new activities over the week.
The trip was a resounding success with the youngsters thoroughly enjoying mountain biking, abseiling, canoeing, kayaking, hill walking, crate stacking, fencing, orienteering, zip wiring and high-rope walking – to name but a few!
And the fabulous experience was rounded off with a final evening at a camp fire, complete with very loud, silly songs and toasted marshmallows.
Every child fully participated in all the activities, giving every challenge a go.
School pupil Emma Kennedy, from room 15, said: “I thought Lockerbie Manor was amazing. I enjoyed every minute and it was an incredible experience.
“My all-time favourite activity was the blind trail, even though I came out covered in mud from head to toe!”
Fellow pupil Isla Hutton of room 16 added: “Lockerbie Manor has been one of the best experiences of my life. I enjoyed every activity and tried new things I never dreamed I would do.
“The instructors helped me conquer my years and encouraged me to do different activities.”
A school spokesperson said: “Every child fully participated in all the new activities, giving every challenge a go. The school was extremely proud of their excellent behaviour, positive attitudes, manners, friendship and team work. They were a real pleasure to take away!”
