Blairvadach 2013

Blairvadach November 2013

Six S3 pupils had the opportunity to take part in a week of outdoor activities as part of a sports leadership and confidence building initiative. Scott Adam, Joe Lakey, Noah Legemah, Fraser MacDougall, Alasdair McTavish and Sam Wheeler spent 5 days at Blairvadach Outdoor Centre where they developed skills in mountain biking and kayaking on a daily basis. As the week progressed the activities became more challenging and after a week of battling with the elements all six boys achieved a certificate of achievement in their chosen sport. Alongside six other schools from Glasgow, the boys took part in a number of team building exercises throughout the week and it is safe to say they relished the challenge. A very enjoyable experience was had by all!


Thank you to our event leader, Ms Sillan from our English Department for co-ordinating the trip.
