Plas Caerdeon Residential 2018

 Plas C 2016
Enjoying the sunshine on a hike.

We are pleased to announce that the annual Residential Activity Week for Year 7 pupils has provisionally been booked.  We hope that many Year 7 pupils will take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.

This year we return to Plas Caerdeon Outdoor Education Centre at Bontduu, near Barmouth.  This is a lovely centre situated in its own grounds and beautiful surroundings. The views across the Mawddach Estuary to Cadair Idris are stunning. The accommodation has been recently modernised and the food is very good.

A trip of this sort presents students with a range of opportunities which we cannot provide within school itself.  For instance, the activities on offer include hill-walking, archery, rock climbing, kayaking, gorge walking, beach exploration and low ropes course.  We include some environmental awareness work while out on the hills and on the beach. 

Looking after oneself when away from home and working as a team are valuable ‘growing-up’ experiences and students will learn to become more responsible and independent through the challenges faced at Plas Caerdeon.  We also aim to have fun!

The visits will take place between Friday 13th July and Thursday 19th July 2018.  This will allow for two sessions.  However, there is limited availability!  Each group will comprise of approximately 40 students, having a three night stay at Plas Caerdeon.
