A day at Galloway Activity Centre

Galloway Activity Centre Trip
On Tuesday the 18th of June 2013, all of Leswalt Primary school went to take part in four different activities at Galloway Activity Centre. These activities were; sailing, kayaking, mountain biking and either laser quest or orienteering.
Sailing was one of our favourite activities. Everyone in primary 5-7 were in threes as they headed out onto the loch. The first person steers, the second person holds the sail and finally the last person is ‘look out’.
Kayaking was probably the activity that we got most wet in!
Again we were in threes all in one boat. Paddles were used to help us move. We wore wet suits.
Mountain biking was an amazing experience for both elder and younger pupils and some of the teachers too! The skills course was used for youngest children and the elders had the main course to practise their skills on. Some even used it as a running track!
Laser quest was great fun out in the woods. With guns we all shot each other having an amazing time. With gun names like Raven and Click, everyone had fun even if they shot their own teammates!
Orienteering was for primary 1-4 and I could see them running around hunting and looking for their next clue laughing and giggling as they ran along!
I was a successful learner when I learnt how to use the sailing boats. I was a responsible citizen by making sure that everyone was safe in the water. I was an effective contributor by bringing my ideas, thoughts and opinions and finally I was a confident individual riding the bike down the steep hills.
Throughout the whole day everyone was smiling, the weather was on our side too! We all hope to go again soon!
