Monday 8 June - Day 2 In France!

Hi Parents and Friends

We've had a great day today, with half of the group out canoeing on the Dordogne river and the other half spending the day at lake Dragonboat Racing and Sailing. The day started out looking a bit grim weather-wise, but we were lucky to have the sun come out during our activities.

"It's been really good and we're looking forward to the next activities" - Ben B & Fintan

"I was really nervous about capsizing in the river, but after I jumped in I realized it was great fun!" Immy

"We played a game called UFO (Unidentified Floating Object) where you go around in the group and talk about things people have done during the day. Then you nominate someone to jump into the river and shout UFO, UFO while they jump in" Ella Ijaz

"It was really cool canoeing because we all had to work together and it wasn't just one person doing all the work. We all had to put the effort in. Also I really enjoyed the trapeze because you had to use your effort and climb up. At the end it felt rewarding when you jumped off!" Duncan C-S

We will try to leave a message every day to let you know what we've been up to.
