Lockerbie Manor 2017 - Day 4 (added 07.05.17)  New!
Well this morning was, I think, the toughest for the children to waken up!  An early breakfast at 7.45 am challenged us all!  The children had to ensure their belongings were packed in their cases and their POD was tidy before their first activity of the day.

The children completed their last two activities of the trip and had their final meal before we waved goodbye.  This group of children have without doubt been the most wonderful group to take to Lockerbie Manor  All children behaved exceptionally well with many instructors commenting on their manners and their team work in supporting and taking part in all of the activities.  Well done everyone!

Lockebie Manor 2017 - Day 3 (added 04.05.17)  New!
So our final full day has arrived.  I think after such a full packed day on Wednesday showed this morning as a few required support in wakening up from bed.  Yet again the breakfast was a big hit with many now understanding the need to have a good breakfast before another long fun packed day!

Our POD inspections are going down well - similarly to the comment made yesterday regarding the shock at the children putting themselves to bed without adult persuasion, the PODs have never been so spectacularly clean.  Current P.6 children reading this, take note!!!

This morning groups were in a mix of activities, more groups completed the high rope challenge, fencing, rifles, archery to name a few.  I think the hit of the day was this afternoon with all groups taking part in the canoeing and kayaking.  Mr. Mackenzie also took part in this where to the children's complete delight and joy, he was flung in the water.  I think the shock of the temperature of the water took him by surprise.  Meanwhile I was enjoying life soaking up the sun snapping his misfortune!  Most if not all returned to the PODs soaked through with the biggest smiles on the faces.

Another special birthday today was that of Mrs. Anderson.  The children and special guests (Mrs. McGarvey and Mrs. McGovern) came to pay the children a visit - uninvited of course ;-)  

The final activity of the day is orienteering, archery or abseiling.  With a final evening ahead of us in such beautiful weather I reckon all children may be slightly hyper tonight...roll on bed time!

Please check out the 'NEWS' gallery within the website to see updated photos.  I aim to put a final 'Day 4' on the website tomorrow evening as well as the remainder of the photographs.

Have fun!
