Yes, tonight’s the night! Time to celebrate the great week we’ve had at School Camp by socializing with all our new found friends at ……the DISCO! And as the day progresses, the excitement grows, as does the immense feeling of success, while the children continue to enjoy and discuss their many achievements accomplished within the past few days, before taking home all the precious moments and wonderful memories, to proudly share with their Parents and Families.


Halfway through the week already! Time passes so quickly when you’re enjoying yourselves and that’s exactly what the Primary 7 children are doing! It is such a pleasure to see all their happy smiling faces….. eager to make new friends, eager to learn and eager to meet each new challenge with enthusiasm! The range of experiences is immense! LOW ACTIVITIES (Mohawk Walk, Ropes Course, Nightline, Orienteering, Problem Solving, Archery, River Dipping, Burn Scrambling, Kayaking, Raft Building and even canoeing on Loch Ard!). HIGH ACTIVITIES (Tree Climb, Pole Climb, Crate Climb, Catwalk and Flying Fox.) and EXPLORATION ACTIVITIES (part and half day walks exploring the surrounding area including The Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, which we are so lucky to literally have on our doostep, whilst doing a wide variety of tasks to find out more about themselves, their group and their surroundings.) I think you will see why, Dounan’s Camp is truly inspirational!


Primary 7 pupils have arrived safe and sound at School Camp after a most enjoyable, scenic journey up to our destination, passing Stirling Castle and of course The Wallace Monument en route! We have unpacked, had lunch and are enjoying our picturesque location as we explore our beautiful surroundings and already participate in a wide range of outdoor activities! Fingers crossed this perfect weather continues…..


My Primary 7 pupils are all set for Dounan’s Camp in Aberfoyle! We are leaving for our adventure on Monday and shall be away until lunchtime on Friday. I shall try my best to update the blog whilst we are away, but as the signal up there is very poor, I unfortunately can make no promises! I shall, however, pass information on via East Linton Primary School. So….. WATCH THIS SPACE! (Miss Wallace)
