A trip away for St Palladius Primary pupils


To celebrate their final years at primary school with their school friends and teachers, P6 and P7 pupils at St Palladius Primary School recently visited Inverclyde National Sports Centre in Largs for a 4-day residential trip that aimed to boost their physical and mental well-being.

The trip was hugely beneficial to all the pupils, allowing them to spend time within existing friendships and also to branch out and make new connections, starting their school year off to a high. The trip was brimming with new activities and challenges for the children to tackle, such as new sports, educational tasks, and problem-solving. After two years of Covid-19 shutdowns and a lack of social activity, this residential trip truly allowed the children to flourish in a fully inclusive environment, embedding a love of physical activity outside of official school and home hours. As positive relationships were formed, enjoyable memories were too.

The children took part in sports such as table tennis, basketball, orienteering, badminton, hockey, hill walks, and a fun quiz night and disco. Inverclyde National Sports Centre pride themselves on being inclusive, tailoring each school’s residential trip to their own physical and catering needs.

Pete Boustead, Educational Ranger at Community Windpower, said: “Community Windpower and the Dalry Parish Boundary Trust were delighted to provide the funding to cover the cost of this valuable residential trip. This trip provided the children with so many new experiences, allowing them to try new sports and make new friends in a fun and safe environment. It was a wonderful experience had by all, and hopefully a time that the children will remember for many years to come.”
