After an exciting treasure hunt last night, we woke to sausages and toast this morning. Groups went orienteering, caving, climbing & abseiling, and on the ropes course. Amy was lowered down a crack into an underground cavern singing Spiderman music. At the end of the day everyone had a favourite moment – Ellen’s was having Arctic roll for tea. We are all being driven mad by owl hooting as Reese has been teaching everyone (including Mrs Mercer) how to do this. The corridors of Benmore resound with hooting. Lots of laughter, lots of fun, lot of new experiences. Too many to mention are all the personal achievements, as the class consistently challenge themselves. Sorry there are no photos yet, but we only have access to a tablet.
I found climbing and abseiling one of the beat activities, says Jemma.
I found caving spooky but fun, says George.
All dorms got nines or tens or ten and a half for dorm inspection but Ms Kavanagh sadly had a very messy room which let us down! says Louisa.
It’s been a really busy few days. I had to fit through a tiny gap in a cave which I didn’t like but I overcame one of my fears- heights, says Alistair.
