Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Sandhead Beach Trip!


As you know, this year we decided to do our school trip closer to home than we usually go.. Why not make the most of the area we live in and what it has to offer! 

So, we hopped on a bus on a glorious Thursday with the sun splitting the sky! (after many days/weeks of worrying about what exactly then weather was going to do…) We arrived at Sands of Luce, Sandhead to start our alpaca trekking with Golden Sands Trekking Centre where pupils got up close and personal feeding some goats, sheep and horses and taking the Alpacas a little jaunt around a pen! 

After this, we headed down to the playpark at Sandhead front to get our hands washed and get ready for our Picnic. A big thanks to Alison for bringing out her ice cream van so we could cool off in the sun with a cone! When the wee ones arrived on the bus – we busted out a picnic for the kings and set to work demolishing the goodies. We had pizzas, sausage rolls, wraps, brownies, sweets and chocolates to get stuck into as well as other bits!

After this, the swimming costumes came out and we headed straight down to the beach and there was no stopping them as they all ploughed straight into the water! What a great time was had, pupils were splashing about with their goggles on, zooming about of bougie boards and just enjoying the sunshine and the sea. 

We had a few minor incidents as the tide caught up with some of our bags (oops!) and a certain someone’s crutches (!!!) were left on an island that disappeared rapidly… But this just added to the smiles of the day! 

Finally we got towelled off and boarded back onto our bus, sandy and happy and ready for home. 

Here are some photos of the day… 10/10 – would do again! 

‘Best trip yet!’ – a direct quote from some pupils on the day!
