First Year Trip to Blackwater Outdoor Activity Centre

Last Friday, April 22nd, the First Year students headed off to the Blackwater  Outdoor Activity Centre along with Mrs.O’Driscoll, Ms.Troy, Mrs.Dowdall and Mrs.Curran. When we arrived, everyone was split up into 3 separate groups. Each group then participated in a number of different activities.  These included Zip Lining, The Giant Swing, The High Ropes Course, Archery and River Tubing. Although the Giant Swing was the favourite for lots of people, the highlight of the day was definitely the River Tubing!

We were kitted out in helmets, wetsuits and lifejackets. We were then given a blue inflatable ring and walked down to the river. Once we got halfway down the river, we stopped and took part in many different games with the instructors. Even though the water was freezing cold that didn’t stop people from jumping in! It was clear that a great day was had by the time we got to the bus, because everyone was wrecked!
