St Mark's are on their way home via the beach!

After a sunny and action packed few days at Plas Nantglyn it is time to say goodbye to St Mark's. It has been a great week and a lovely way to finish is to now go to the beach at Rhyl for some sandcastle building and home by mid afternoon for a relaxing evening.

Another action packed day for St Mark's

Today it was off to Plas Y Brenin for some skiing, climbing and canoeing. Then it was back to base for a talent show, story and a 46 verse song to finish off the trip.

Put yours hands up in the air!

I'm flying

Looking very cool boys.

'Isn't it funny! I keep treading on her toes!'

Some of the talent on show, which included these wonderful singers.

Will the soloist came an excellent second for his performance.

Simon, Cheryl, Tulisa and Gary all deep in thought

Story time

More cake for the birthday boy Jake

The 46 verse went down well before bedtime.

A full day at Plas Nantglyn for St. Mark's.

Wow! I am exhausted by just taking photos of this group. The day was very action packed and was filled with glorious sunshine throughout. The actvities today included the bottle run, dam building, rope swinging across the stream, breaking codes, a camp fire and much more.

Some early morning sporting fun.

Time for the bottle run.

Teamwork at its very best.

Sending coded messages to those on  the other side of the field.

Learning to cook on a fire.

Make sure the waffles are nice and crispy.

That looks like a good solid fire.

Dam building

The queue for the rope swing which has always been very popular here.

Singing around the camp fire.

Guitar, camp fires, some lovely songs. Much better than watching TV

Just getting in to a good voice.
