On the 14th of June 2018 at 8:30 we were heading off on our school tour to Roscrea Cistercian College, the Fun Academy. Pupils from Juniors to Sixth class were going. When we arrived there we left our bags in the changing room and went out to the field to do orienteering. It was great fun to find all the answers to the questions. Kate and I came joint first with Jason and Ben. Next we did an outdoor obstacle course, we were split into teams to do a relay around the obstacle course. When we were finished we went back to the changing room for a small break. After that we went swimming. The pool was freezing and we had only one ball to play with. I don’t think anyone really liked the pool. Meanwhile the juniors and seniors were playing games outside. After we got changed we went back to the changing room and had big lunch. We then went and did the bouncy castle obstacle course, Knockout and multi-ball. We got a bit more lunch after that and started to make egg rockets. Moya and Lily came first, me and Ava came second. Next we went on the water slide. Juniors and Seniors weren’t old enough to go on it. Everyone else had a few goes on it. After a while we had to go get changed and dry and get ready for the nightline. In night line we had to put on blacked out goggles and hang onto the rope. Soon we had to go back down and get our bags and go home on the bus. We arrived home at 5:15. I really enjoyed the tour. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.
