Talybont 2017

Another brilliant time was had by all in Talybont, September 2017.

We set off on Tuesday 19th September to Talybont Outdoor Education Centre for four days and three night of laughter, fun and some brilliant, memorable experiences.

Over the four days, we all experienced canoeing, archery, waterfall walking, hill walking and orienteering. The activities presented us with new challenges but each one was a fantastic way to develop life skills whilst making unforgettable memories and having a load of fun. However, the children would argue that the most challenging events that they experienced were making their own beds and lunches! They are now able to do both of these things successfully, with a little help from their friends.

We owe our leaders at the centre; Sue, Glyn and Dan, a huge thank you as the experience would not have been the same without them!

We returned on Friday with some very sleepy heads but each was accompanied with a big smile.

Well done on another brilliant trip to Talybont year 6! You did yourselves proud.
