Nursery youngsters on track for perfect end of term trip
PUPILS from Lochyside RC Primary School Nursery enjoyed a trip to Corrour on Friday June 17.
Nineteen children, accompanied by staff and parents, travelled by train from Fort William to Corrour, the UK’s highest mainline railway station.
They had a 30-minute walk down to Loch Ossian where they tucked into a picnic lunch and played at the water’s edge.
They then walked back to the station restaurant where the pupils were treated to a share of a birthday cake for one of the youngsters.
Lochyside head teacher Violet Smith told The Oban
Times the children had been doing a topic on ‘People who help us’ and had previously been invited to see a sleeper train by driver John Hynd, which is why they had wanted to go on a train journey for their end of term trip.
Ms Smith said: ‘The children loved the journey. They looked out at the hills and the lochs and the wildlife, and the staff at the cafe couldn’t have been more welcoming.’
She added: ‘It was a perfect day out. Everyone had a wonderful, wonderful time.’
