A wet week for budding geographers!

Wow what A week! This weeks group have done fantastically over coming everything that mother nature decided to throw at them. It really has been a wet week. The group managed to get on with every activity with out moaning, and groaning. We wish all of our year 11 geographers the best with there up and coming GCSEs, and hope they take some great memories away from Blue Peris.

If the geography fails, you definitely have a job in the mining industry

Summer fun!

Another gorgeous day here in North Wales, keep the good weather coming! We thought there was no better way to celebrate the weather than going out and enjoying some wet activities. We had two groups exploring the coastline down on Anglesey, enjoying the jumps, climbs, and numerous challenges put in their way. A further two groups enjoyed the beauty that can be found at Llyn padarn; exploring the lake and lagoons by canoe; and then went for a climb over looking the lake at Union rock. We have had a blast today, and look forward to more adventures tomorrow.

We had a fantastic time in the gorge with out university group yesterday. The group really came into their own, overcoming all the challenges that our instructors set them. They had a great time last night visiting some of the local nightlife for food and a few beverages in Llanberis. Looking forward to a fantastic day on Padarn today canoeing.
