Conway Centre, Anglesey, by Mrs Nolan

It was an absolute privilege to take our Year 5/6 class to the Conway Centre. We had two rain free days and one with a few light showers whilst at home there were floods and constant rain. Whilst there we sailed Keelboats,did the zip wire,low ropes and problem solving. We also raced dragons, did orienteering,navigated the night line,danced at the disco,toasted marshmallows and played Mrs Nolan's Bingo !

The children were impeccably well behaved. The centre staff commented on what a super group of children they were. Thank you to all who made it possible.

Well done everyone!
