R10 Residential Trip to Cardiff Bay

On Thursday 7th May an excited R10 headed to Cardiff Bay for their annual overnight stay at the Urdd. Our first stop was the Millennium Stadium where the pupils had a guided tour. Highlights included holding the Dove Trophy and running out through the players’ tunnel to applause over the stadium speakers. A visit to the Senedd followed where pupils learned about the history of the Assembly but also about the unique and sustainable design of the building.

After a busy day we headed back to the Urdd where we had an entertaining evening, which included a talent show and a quiz.

The following morning, after a hearty breakfast R10 headed to the Millennium Centre for a tour. A hotly contested ten-pin bowling match followed and our top scorer was Sara M! After a quick lunch, we embarked on a tour of Cardiff Bay by boat. The pupils were lucky enough to learn about the history of Cardiff Bay and the construction of the barrage.

After a packed two days of activities we headed back to St John’s with a tired but happy R10.

Throughout the trip the staff received many positive comments about the children’s behaviour.

Thank you R10 for making this another successful and enjoyable trip.
