Senior Tour to Lough Key Forest and Activity Park
All the children from 2nd class to 6th Class has a great, fun-filled day in Lough Key Forest Activity park! The tour was a hit with everyone and the children had a blast!
The children took part in the 'Boda Borg" which consisted of escape room type activities. The children were divided into team of 5/6 children who had to work together to complete each room. Each group was given a card that they had to stamp when they had completed each room. When they entered the two-story room, they were able to choose which rooms to do. They could complete each room as many time as they wish until they succeed in that room. Each room contained some activity where the children worked together, using their problem solving skills to figure out what to do. Some rooms were easier than others and some rooms caused so much frustration that they some gave up on it! The whole activity was so enjoyable for everyone and their competitive sides came out!
After finishing the escape room, we were given a tour of the grounds of Lough Key. We learned about the history of the area, the family that lived there, the main house, the fire, the lake, legends of the area and how the area became what it is today.
And the highlight of the entire tour was our stop in Supermacs and the shop on the way home. That is probably the only part of the tour the children have told you about!!! After working off their energy in the escape room we sent them home high on sugar which made for a great bus ride home!!!
