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 gear we wore for the activities, different each time, were swimsuits, buoyancy aids, wet coats and waterproof overalls so you know we were safe.
