Company Section September 2016
At the start of August, 13 Company Section boys and three leaders travelled to Findhorn on the Moray Coast for our annual Summer Camp.
We enjoyed a busy five days with some of the activities proving a real test for both boys and staff.
“Coasteering” was a new activity for us which involved a mixture of swimming, scrambling and jumping in and out of rocks and pools on the coastline at Portnockie – all the while dealing with the waves as they crashed in.
That was followed by a day spent gorge walking, with our older boys in particular faced with the technical challenge of finding a route to climb Dorback Burn, close to the River Findhorn.
Other activities were bit less adventurous, with trips swimming and to the cinema, while Findhorn Beach proved a glorious setting for football, rounders and evening walks when the boys could be torn away from Pokémon hunting on their phones.
Our attention now turns towards the beginning of the new session, with enrolment taking place on Friday, September 2nd at 8.00pm.
Normal activities include sports, games, badge work, bugle band, drill, vaulting and a large number of competitions with other local companies as well as our own Company outings.
We ended last session with 21 boys in the Company Section and we hope to have similar or higher numbers this time around. Any boy between the school ages of P7 and S6 will be made most welcome.
