The trip to Snowdon was organised as part of the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOTC) initiative and took place 8th - 12th May 2017. A total of 8 students (mixed year groups) and 3 staff went on the trip and had an amazing week full of fun and activities during which the students developed existing skills and learnt new ones. They stayed at Rhyd-y-Creuau Field Centre which is a Georgian stone house in two hectares of wooded grounds near Betws-y-Coed in the Conwy Valley, in Conwy county borough, Wales. It was also conveniently close to the mountainous environment of the Snowdonia National Park.
Here are just some of the activities the students engaged in:
- Den building – to develop team working skills
- Walking expeditions around the lakes
- Football – during social time. Also, played with other schools
- Setting traps for catching small rodents such as voles
- Gorge walking
- And of course, walking up Snowdon in seven and a half hours – definitely something to be proud of.
