2016 Tour to Petersburg!

Posted by Grace On June - 22 - 2016

On Monday the 20th we went on our school tour to Petersburg!

We went rock climbing and also built rafts which we sailed on Lough Mask. While building the rafts we learned how to tie four different types of knots. For the rock climbing we had to trust each other… A LOT!

Here are some photos of the trip.
