School Trip 2000. An evening at Atlantis Leisure

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.

An evening at Atlantis Leisure

We arrived at Atlantis Leisure Centre at 6:05. There we met children from Easdale, Coll and Kilninver. Mrs Anderson (headteacher at Easdale) put us into groups of eight. I was with Lawrie, Jamie, Kenneth, Claire, lain, Keith and Nick. We got to do football first and so we went into the sports hall. We all got into teams. Easdale- Claire, Ian, Nick and Keith against us. Of course, Coll scored the first goal! And then another and another! We won- 4.3 (hooray!!) Time was up and we moved onto badminton.

We started practising and after a wee while Miss Allan taught us a game called Hit and Run. It was great fun! Miss Allan missed a few times, but so did I. When it was time to change over we went to table tennis.

We started playing table tennis. I played with lain, Claire and Keith. First we were quite good then rubbish and then it was tennis inside with table tennis bats and pingpong balls! It was great fun though!
