School Trip 2000. Dinner at the Great Food Stop.

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.

Dinner at the Great Food Stop

On the Friday we came back to Oban from Easdale we had dinner at the Great Food Stop. When we went in we got shown to our table then we ordered our food. Some of us had burgers, some had fish and some of us had macaroni cheese. Most of us got our food after about 10-15 minutes, but the macaroni took ages! The first one came not long after the fish and burgers, but the other two came about 30 minutes after we'd ordered them!! It wasn't that bad though because we got 25% off our bill!

When we had finished our main course Miss Allan went out to buy a "Times Ed". While she was gone we ordered our puddings and Miss Allan's because she had told us what she wanted. While she was still out the waiter came back and told us that they had run out of what she wanted, so we looked at each other and chuckled! When she came back we told her about the pudding and she decided not to have one after all!!

We finished and went back to the hostel, played Trivial Pursuit and pool and went to bed.
