21.06.22 : Outdoor Adventures - Summer 2022

Pupils at St Leonards have enjoyed all manner of exciting outdoor adventures this month. Year 5 headed to Perthshire for a residential adventure at PGL Dalguise, whilst Year 6 had a blast on their week away in the Highlands, camping under the stars on Survival Island after a week at the Ridgway Adventure Centre. The pupils participated in lobster creeling, kayaking, archery, abseiling, sea swimming and wild camping, as well as tackling the summit of Arkle as a team.

Closer to home, the Year 7 pupils put their orientation, leadership and teamwork skills into practice as they climbed the East Lomond Hill, and embarked upon an adventure day at Willowgate. Everyone felt a great sense of accomplishment as they reached the summit, and enjoyed soaking up the spectacular views over Fife before heading back to Falkland for warming hot chocolates. 

Last, but by no means least, the Year 9 pupils are looking forward to heading down to the West Sands for a morning of watersports with Blown Away. These outdoor adventures have not only given the pupils memories that will last a lifetime, but have also helped them to develop transferable skills, namely resilience, perseverance and communication, that will serve them well in the years to come.
