THE GREAT OUT­DOORS

Wishaw Press - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Wishaw Academy pupils had the time of their lives on an en­er­getic trip to Kil­bowie Out­door Cen­tre.

The P7 kids took part in a range of ex­cit­ing ac­tiv­i­ties last week, in­clud­ing gorge walk­ing, ab­seil­ing, ski­ing, ori­en­teer­ing and more.

The trip rounded off with a disco on Thurs­day night.

Head teacher Kay Barr said the kids had an “ab­so­lutely bril­liant time” and hopes the cen­tre con­tin­ues for many more years.

She said: “The chil­dren look for­ward to the trips so much and there’s so many pos­i­tives to take.

“They’ve been ori­en­teer­ing, ski­ing, ab­seil­ing and lots more. The trip is a fan­tas­tic team bond­ing ex­er­cise, and so­cially it is great for them.

“They meet chil­dren from other schools which is good be­fore mov­ing to high school as well.

“It’s also bril­liant for their health and well­be­ing, be­ing out­side all week. Hope­fully this will in­spire them to keep ac­tive later in their lives.

“Kil­bowie is a fan­tas­tic re­source for North La­nark­shire and long may it con­tinue.”
