Pupils from Braidhurst High joined five other North Lanarkshire secondary schools for an adventurous week at the Outward Bound Centre at Loch Eil.

They took part in a number of outdoor pursuits during their week away, including an overnight expedition, canoeing, abseiling and hill walking.

Each of the activities allowed individual pupils to improve their self-confidence and communication skills and and all were able to successfully achieve the Outward Bound Trust’s Adventure and Challenge Award (SCQF Level 5) in addition to the John Muir Discovery Award.

All pupils agreed that despite the freezing weather conditions they had thoroughly enjoyed their experience. Pictured getting to grips with one of the activities is Jessica Nicholls.
