As new transition year students we got the year off to a great start with a trip to Ardmore Adventure Centre on Thursday the 1st of September. We tried rock climbing, archery, orienteering and team building activities. We had to solve puzzles by working together. We also ran around the beach screaming to test whose lungs were the biggest. While we were orienteering we also had to trust each other and read a map to solve the course.
The staff from Ardmore Adventure Centre visited our school in Dungarvan on Thursday the 8thof September, and we carried out orienteering around the town. We were looking for little squares with letters and numbers. Then we came back to our school. When it was raining we took part in some team building exercises inside such as putting up a tent blindfolded and we also had to take it down the fastest.
We would like to give many thanks to the Ardmore adventure centre crew. We had great fun and would love to visit the adventure centre soon.
