Rock climbing with Mrs North’s group

To start of our rock climbing day, we walked along the railway line from Fairbourne to Barmouth. We scrambled the rocks to reach the top of Barmouth Slab to see the views across the Mawddach estuary to Cadair Idris where the views were nothing short of stunning. Everyone showed true determination to scramble to the top and rope climb a face of the slab. A beautiful day.

Miss Walters’ Group

Today, we had so much fun gorge walking and canoeing. We went down a slide, jumped in the lake and crashed our boats repeatedly, whilst getting stuck in every tree along the way. We overcome fears, pushed ourselves to our limits and most of all worked as a team. What a fantastic group we are!

Mr Stevens and Mr Graham’s group Mining ⛏ ⛏

Today, our group had a fantastic day exploring the slate mines in Blaenau Ffestiniog. After a short climb up the mountain to the mine entrance, we entered the mine working our way through the tight tunnels and open chambers inside the mountain. We slowly worked our way up six levels to the peak of the mountain which included some climbing using the safety ropes. We learnt lots of interesting facts along the way as well as discovering some interesting things such as abandoned mine carts and machinery. What a unique experience this was and one that will live long in the memory for all of us.
