Our previous post about Cromdale showed our Primary 7 pupils setting off on their residential trip to Cromdale. Whilst there, they participated in gorge walking, abseiling, mountain biking, swimming and lots of other outdoor activities. Our slideshow below shows some of the fun they had…oh and some of the chores they had to carry out. Hope some parents realise how good their children were at hoovering!
This marshmallow looks hot!
Toasting the marshmallows.
Round the fire.
Oops…thei looks like a burnt offering.
Maybe a bit better.
These look like they need more toasting.
The fire is burning nicely.
Gathering round the camp fire.
The toasting begins. Yum!
It’s all too much.
The fire still hasn’t started.
Yet another person tries to start the fire.
Someone else has a go at fire lighting.
Still no fire.
Trying to light the fire.
A group of four.
It’s just a walk in the woods.
I hope they’re not lost in woods.
Getting ready for abseiling.
Is this abseiling or tree hugging?
Almost on the way down.
Another pupil gears up for another abseiling adventure.
Getting ready to go.
On the way down.
Is that the headteacher.
Getting some instructions.
This looks like good fun.
Away on a hike.
The weather doesn’t look great.
Someone who’s a whizz with a hoover.
Lots of brushes and mops on the go here.
Finishing up the chores.
More fun outside.
Nothing like a game of table football at the end of a long, tiring day.
On the bus!
