Arrival Day 2!

7th June 2017

The rainy return to winter-like weather broke on Tuesday night, just in time for the arrival the Year 4 and Year 6 classes from LCIS on Wednesday morning. Both classes arrived full of energy and anticipation of the great times and activities ahead. After the excitement of finding out rooms buddies and a spot of lunch, it was action all stations. Year 4 commenced with mountain biking and Year 6 attacked and conquered the climbing wall and the archery range.

Year 4 had a huge effort at mountain biking. All of the students made it down the mountain unscathed and thanks to Andy on the beginner tracks, everyone benefited greatly from this session and developed their own personal biking skills enormously. Year 6 honed their skills on the archery range and although the competition was close, in the end there was only one clear winner with 22 points out of a possible 30 points. (NB neither winner was Ms Leithead or Mr Smith!!). Led by Siobhan and Steve the climbing wall was a great ‘craic’ and focused on preparing everyone for the challenges of tomorrow when we will go outdoor climbing on crags.

As ever, the fun never stops at Camp Suisse and after dinner Year 4 partied the night away at their disco as Year 6 went to the camp fire to sing songs deep in the forest.

Stay tuned!
