St Nicholas House pupils and Years 7/8/9 ‘bubbles’ enjoyed fun packed activity camps over the Easter holidays. There was Stand Up Paddle Boarding and canoeing taking place on the nearby Brecon canal, tennis on our outdoor courts, indoor cricket, hockey on the all weather pitch as well as dragon pot clay making in the art studio and ‘Matilda’ drama sessions and Mini-band workshops in our performing arts centre.
Junior ( St Nicholas House) pupils tried their hand at canoeing under the careful tuition of Blue Dot Adventure . After getting kitted out in all the gear the children learnt how to steer the boat and move it forward and turn it around. Once more confident, they took part in races and games . Tremendous fun was had by all especially on the two canoes that were connected together to form a raft .
Yrs 7/8/9 (in their bubbles) tried their hand at stand up paddle boarding and canoeing again in the capable hands of Blue Dot Adventure . The weather was freezing cold on both days but they braved the cold in their wet suits and other protective gear. Due to cross winds, the session was held on the Brecon Canal . It will be the river Usk, once conditions are right.
The next Holiday Activity camp will take place in the Whitsun Half Term.
