The inaugural Year 7 trip to Ridgway Adventure Centre near Ardmore was a triumph.
Arriving at the centre shortly after 2pm on Saturday, 26 May, after stop-offs in Inverness and Ullapool on the way, the adventure started with the boys and girls settling into their dorms before kitting up for some swimming (and not the indoor kind!).
The week continued with hiking, raft-building, team-building games, abseiling and all sorts of other outdoor activities which called upon the three simple principles of the Ridgway Adventure Centre: positivity; self-reliance; leaving people and places better than you found them.
Thank you to Mr Goldsmith, Mr Barrable and Miss Neave for accompanying the group, and to the wonderful team at Ridgway, who have produced a fantastic diary detailing all the highlights.
