P7 has recently been to Dalguise and we had an amazing experience! On the Wednesday when we boarded the bus and loaded up our bags and got ready to go. After we arrived and had lunch we headed up to the dorm, Faskalli, the boys were right across the hall from the girls and next to miss Johnston-Kehoes room, she got no sleep. Our first activity was the burn walk we had to walk through freezing cold water and climb up steep and sharp rocks! Then the boys and girls split up into 2 groups, the boys went to raft building and made a successful raft but jumped off anyway! Meanwhile the girls were harnessed up and shooting down the zip line. After all that we went and messed around in our dorms then we had dinner and went to sleep.

On the next day the girls did the sensory trail whilst the boys were doing the activity courses and Sam, Murdo and Struan commando crawled through the mud and their shirts went crispy. Then the girls did the vertical challenge and the boys did the zip line. Then it was lunch, after lunch the girls did the challenge course and got muddy as well, while the boys were doing the sensory trail and Murdo went insane about fluffy things. And at the end of the day Struan got smashed into the ladder and got a bump sticking out of his head.

Then on the last day the girls built an awesome raft and did the giant swing. And the boys did the giant swing and the vertical challenge.

Overall we enjoyed it a lot and are very grateful of being given the opportunity to go.

STEM Club is a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths club. We are doing the First Lego League for Hydro Dynamics pupils can join any time but there is a competition and if we win the competition we go onto another competition and if we win that competition we get the chance to go to America. We have already made the lego pieces and set up the mat and today we planned  what our robot is going to look like so it can do as it is told. As an example for one of the missions we have to do. So the example that I’m going to tell you is the rain cloud what you have to do is you have to get your robot to push a lever and make at least one rain fall.
