We welcome Holy Name R.C Primary School from Fishguard for a 3 nights residential from today.
Already the children have settled into their new surroundings and have experienced their first taste of activities this afternoon.
Weather conditions are dry but foggy and so we hope to see some sunshine from tomorrow and for the rest of the week.
With the proposed changes and even suggestion of abolishment of adventure activities licensing we are happy to confirm that the Welsh Government/Llywodraeth Cymru have decided to retain adventure licensing in respect of Wales.

Over the last week work has been focused on developing a new on-site venue for bushcraft. Reclaiming existing land an area has now been cleared to allow for this unique activity to take place as part of the schools’ programme from Spring 2012.
Once completed the venue will consist of a storage unit, an all weather session shelter, woodland and fresh water stream. It is hoped under the specialist guidance of Head Instructor Andy Booth, Bushcraft will become a popular activity choice amongst the schools, as it will allow for further learning outside of the classroom and access to all.
Below are some photos from the the early stages of development.
The children and accompanying staff arrived safely at Morfa Bay and following lunch started their adventurous activity programme.
Mon evening the children walked to the beach and enjoyed playing in the shallow water and building castles etc
Later returned to the centre for hot chocolate and a well earned rest.
Tues – Beautiful sunny not too cold start to the day.
Some of the children have just returned from Sea Activities and all excitedly commenting on the fun and wishing they could do it all again! Other groups having fun and challenging themselves on the climbing wall,abseil face and zip line.
