We are having a great time at Benmore. We arrived yesterday ready to start our first activity but first we had to make our beds and unpack. Making our beds was quite tricky but everyone persevered and we got there. We explored the beautiful grounds of Benmore in our activity groups and got to know our tutors. 5 O’clock is Cake o’clock at Benmore which was very exciting and is now the time we all look forward to and are more than ready for after a very busy day of activities.
Last night we went on a Night Walk where we all had to work as a team and support each other. We might not have been able to see very well but we were all listening very carefully to the advice of those in our group.
After such a busy day everyone was exhausted and literally fell into their beds and went to sleep very quickly, ready for their first full day of activities.
Today there was gorge walking, canoeing, forest exploring and abseiling for all the different groups. Every single person in every group worked so hard and managed to overcome any fears including the Stoneyhill Staff !
Tonight is a quiz night around the house and then early to bed. Hopefully 😉
Photos will be posted up when we can and Mr Johnston has also uploaded some photos and information on Primary 7 Google Classroom.
Everyone is having a great time so far.
