Junior Manor Adventure

KGJS J4 pupils, along with Mr Lewis, Mr Oddie, Mrs Farquharson,  Mrs Tickle and Mr Brookes, set off for an action-packed week at Manor Adventure in Lockerbie. The group stopped off at Penrith Leisure Centre to break up the journey and enjoyed an hour of badminton, table tennis and football. After lunch, they continued on their way and arrived at Lockerbie at 3pm, where they were given a tour of the hotel. Each day, after a hearty breakfast, which included Scottish pancakes, the children enjoyed a selection of activities including; zip wire, low ropes, mountain biking, rifles, paddle boarding, raft building, kayaking, canoeing, obstacle course, abseiling, climbing, archery, fencing, crate stack and initiative challenges! There were occasions when nerves took hold but everyone was determined to try every activity. On Wednesday evening, the children enjoyed an outdoor disco! Everybody had a fantastic time at the disco but the children were really tired afterwards, so were all asleep in no time! The weather throughout the week was truly fantastic and the children (and teachers!) had lots of fun and the most incredible time! This was a wonderful trip that has hopefully created lots of memories for the children that will last a lifetime!
