The sun was shining, the sea was calm, which all helped to make Primary 7’s first John Muir Day a huge success. Everyone returned to school full of exciting recounts about their canoeing adventure. There was a great sense of achievement within the class at over-coming fears and pushing their own boundaries. A huge thank you to all who enabled this trip to take place; John and Jill who lead the day, Mrs Leslie, John and Vaila who accompanied the pupils (even the grown-ups had a super time).
As Molly said on her return, “Can we just go back to the start of the day and do it all again?”
Bertie ready to go.
People were taking photographs of us as we paddled
alongside the cruise ship Hebridean Sky.
A highlight was exploring inside a cave.
We really enjoyed being able to jump into the sea.
We had to stand up and balance on the canoe.
Everyone agreed that it was the best day ever.
Lauryn said, “It was a new experience and I’d definitely do it again. It made me realise I can do things even when I think I can’t.”
Carys thought it was great fun and particularly enjoyed going in the cave.
“It was really great fun. It made me think positively,” said Zara.
Niamh was fascinated to see jellyfish in the cave.
Bertie commented, “Even though I was a bit stressed to begin with, overall it was a fun experience.”
Ciaran thought the whole day was great fun.
Michael said, “It was an amazing day and I hope to do it again.”
On the way back- everyone tired but extremely happy!
