Year 7 Trip to Lake Plastiras

Senior School

Our Year 7 pupils recently embarked on an unforgettable journey to Lake Plastiras, and what an adventure it turned out to be! From thrilling outdoor activities to team building exercises and breathtaking hikes, the trip was filled with fun, learning, and unforgettable memories.

On the first day, the pupils wasted no time in diving headfirst into the various activities available at the lake. Canoeing, water biking, mountain biking, and archery were the exciting options that awaited them. The children revelled in the thrill of navigating the pristine waters, pedalling through the lake's glistening surface, and honing their aim with a bow and arrow. These activities not only provided a thrilling experience but also allowed them to discover new skills and interests.

The day was not just about adrenaline-pumping adventures; it also offered a chance for the pupils to bond with one another and develop their teamwork skills. Through team building activities, the children learned the importance of effective communication, synchronization, and positive spirit. It was heartwarming to witness their enthusiasm as they worked together, encouraging and supporting each other. Some of them even took advantage of a moment of rain to embark on a memorable lakeside walk, listening to the soothing sounds of nature.

The second day of the trip took the pupils and their teachers on a captivating hike to one of the peaks of the majestic Agrafa mountain. As they trekked through the rugged terrain, they were treated to breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding landscape. A quick snack break provided an opportunity for all of them to appreciate the beauty around and reflect on their journey so far. They then continued their hike, filled with a sense of achievement and wonder.

To culminate their hiking adventure, the children enjoyed a well-deserved lunch at the Agrafa hut, savouring their meal while sharing stories and laughter. It was evident that the trip had created lasting memories and forged new friendships among some of them. The journey back to Athens was filled with anticipation for future adventures and a sense of gratitude for the incredible experiences they had shared.

The Year 7 trip to Lake Plastiras was truly a remarkable experience for everyone involved. The pupils not only had the chance to engage in thrilling activities but also learned the value of teamwork, communication, and a positive outlook. The beauty of nature, combined with the spirit of adventure, made this trip an unforgettable one.

As we bid farewell to Lake Plastiras, our pupils carry with them loads of beautiful memories, newfound friendships, and a sense of excitement for the future. We look forward to witnessing their continued growth and the adventures that await them in Year 8!
