Edin to the city
Seventy-four pupils and nine staff went on a three-day trip to Edinburgh.
One of the groups visited Holyrood Palace while the other group went to see the parliament.
The group at the palace were given a tour which included the hall where people receive their Queen’s honours, the room where Darnley was murdered in 1567 and the beautiful gardens.
Unfortunately they did not get to see the rooms where the Queen lives.
Group two was at a meet-and-greet with Finlay Carson MSP who answered questions with enthusiasm. They were then taken into the chamber where MSPs were debating a number of issues, one of which was education.
After dinner in a restaurant with a stunning view of Edinburgh Castle, pupils headed to a ghost walk on the Royal Mile.
Friday began with a reversal of the groups visiting Holyrood Palace and the parliament.
After lunch they headed to the Camera Obscura which most found mind-boggling. They were treated to a fantastic view of the city.
After taking in the Royal Mile they headed for dinner before a trip to Ocean Terminal. At The Boardwalk they had the choice of roller-blading, skateboarding, scootering or BMXing.
Saturday saw them head to the castle for the final part of the trip. They were able to see the crown jewels, the stone of destiny and the famous cannon Mons Meg.
Wearily they headed back to the bus after a busy but enjoyable time and embarked on the journey home.
Calvin Lowden said: “I loved the atmosphere of the city and everything we did.”
Mrs Bowles, who organised the trip, added: “The pupils were amazing; great fun to be with and excellent ambassadors.”
