Kirkby's finest take on a medley of mystery activities

The final day at the centre arrived and the sun shone once more! The morning was spent tackling 5 different activities around the centre including geocaching (don't worry Mr T didn't know what it was either), an Easter egg hunt (slightly early), bridge building, parachute games and the bottle run. The afternoon consisted of a short (3 hour) walk around the village following a set of clues before heading back to Plas Nantglyn for dinner and a campfire to round the week off.  
Letters and sounds take on a whole different meaning in Wales.

Year 5 girls try and fail to phone home (not really!!)

Ofsted visit Plas Nantglyn and find the Kirkby C of E teachers to be their field  

The campfire in full flow.

Bliss entertains the troops with her rendition of Dolly's not Whitney's version of 'I will always love you'.

Counting the frogspawn and tadpoles.

Now where are they?

Eating the rewards as the eggs are found.

Building bridges

The bridge builders take a well deserved tea break.

The children make a controlled landing after their skydive.

It's hot in here

A well deserved rest

The team prepare to hunt the caches 

Don't worry - for health and safety reasons only plastic bottles were used.

Team work is the key for the bottle run!

Are we nearly there yet?
