Our Class activity trip to Plas Menai.

Extracts from this document...


This year, 2006, the 1st formers went Plas Menai in Wales , from September the 11th to 13th of September, to learn different types of activities such as sailing ,canoeing ,rock climbing ,power boating and wind surfing. The teachers that came with us were Mrs Cooke, Mr Cassidy, Miss Batey and Mr Philips. The journey to Plas Menai was long and boring, two and a half hours, we had set up at quarter to eight and arrived at approximately 10:30.we given keys for the houses or the hotels.

We had to put materials around it so when we drop it won't crack plus we had to make a song and dance with it. The gear we wore for the activities, different each time, were swimsuits, buoyancy aids, wet coats and waterproof overalls so you know we were safe.
