Primary 7 children have just returned from a visit to Ardentinny Outdoor Education Centre, near Dunoon. The children had a fantastic time and their behaviour was excellent – a real credit to Carlibar. They enjoyed a range of activities including canoeing, rock climbing, gorge walking, orienteering, hill walking, seashore trail and a night walk in the woods behind the centre. They also took part in team challenges which helped them to develop skills such as negotiation, making decisions, taking risks and working co-operatively.
