Dalbeattie saw lots of new activity for the last week of term. Many of our young people and their families, as well as staff, were out enjoying exercising on their bikes, scooters and feet, around the, ‘Staff Bitmoji Town Trail.”
Armed with an orienteering map, marked with 29 Bitmoji locations, spread all around the town, the challenge was not only to find them, but to guess who the member of staff was. This really got folks thinking, and as many said, “It was tricky to work out who was who.” All who took part reported it was great fun, as it gave, “the whole family a good reason for getting out and about.” Someone even said, “I hope this might be something the school does again, as it’s been really good.”
The highest score for correct identifications, with 28/29, were the Donnelly and the Whalen families, who did some of the trail zooming around the town on their bikes and having fun together.Lots of others were close behind them.Well done all who took part.
And thank you Mrs Gray and all the staff team for organising such a fun and successful activity. We also want to thank Tim & Helen O’ Donoghue from Solway Orienteers, for their invaluable work providing us with a high quality map.”
Families are also reminded that if they want another trail to do over the holidays, the link on the school blog, to the ‘Woodland Walk Photo Challenge’ is still available, on a separate post with photos of participants so far, but don’t scroll down too far in the post as the answers have now been posted! A further town trail has also been added. The P1/2 Summer Walk Quiz is now available to all further below.
Two other town trails are still available for over the holidays:
