Trip was full of ac­tiv­i­ties

Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE - Leona Greenan

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!”
