Dol Y Moch
It was raining very heavily, when we arrived at Plas Dol-y-Moch. As soon as we arrived at the centre, we had fish and chips for tea and then collected our kit. Then the children spent time making their beds and getting settled into their dorms.
After such a long coach journey and busy evening, the children (and staff!) went to sleep very quickly. Although this is the first time away from home for many of our children, they have got used to their new surroundings very quickly.
After breakfast this morning, the children made their own sandwiches and met their instructors for their first activities. Groups A and B did kayaking and rock scrambling at the beach. The majority of the children, and even Mr Somal and Mr Davenport, plucked up the courage to do the ‘Dol y Moch dive’.
We are pleased to advise you that the school has today been awarded the Artsmark award of ‘Gold’!
This award demonstrates that the school delivers high quality arts and cultural education. This is the highest award available so we are delighted with this outcome!
