School Trip 2000. Tuesday 14th March 2000, the Best School Trip Ever.
School Trip 2000

This year's school trip was a joint school venture. Easdale Primary hosted a Scottish Opera workshop to which pupils from Kilninver and Luing were invited as well as ourselves. The children stayed with "host families" on Seil Island and some firm friendships were made for the future. Here is the children's account of our ground-breaking trip.

Tuesday 14th March 2000, the Best School Trip Ever

It was an exiting day. We were going to Easdale, on a school trip. We got to school and did our work. Then Fay drove us to the boat and waved goodbye. It was a long time till we got to Easdale from Oban in a taxi.
We stopped at the school and met the teachers and they took me and Jamie to his gran's house first. We got to know Angus (the boy we were staying with) and we played in the garden. It was good and then we walked to his house. We unpacked and got welcome and played pool on a pool table in our bedroom and played with it. We played 'shootie' then met his brothers, Neil and Robert. I beat everybody at pool! We had tea and showed him how to play Spooks in the dark. Then we got ready for bed and went to sleep. The best bit was playing with Angus. IT WAS GREAT
