Year 7 Visit to Glan Llyn

Ysgol Brynhyfryd’s Year 7 students were given a wonderful opportunity to attend a fun packed and educational two day adventure at Gwersyll yr Urdd, Glanllyn near Bala. They experienced kayaking and canoeing in teams on Llyn Tegid, to encourage peer bonding and communication skills as well as practical problem solving. Our students also attempted their skills on a high ropes and climbing wall course – many of our students braved the ‘leap of faith’, which involved safety harnesses and equipment and plenty of encouragement from their friends and peers. One of our pupils said, “I’m so glad I was brave enough to step off that high board, I laughed all the way down and felt 10 foot tall!” – intrepid and courageous but lots of fun was had by all (including the teaching staff!) We are already looking forward to our next adventure together!
