Nurs­ery young­sters on track for per­fect end of term trip

The Oban Times - - The Oban Times & West Highland Times -

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.’
