Trip to the Aquatic Centre for 4th and 5th Class

On Tuesday, the 15th of June we left the school at half nine. We rode a double-decker with Mr. Burke’s, Ms. Rushe’s and Ms. Fleming’s 4th and 5th class. We arrived at 10 o’clock. Then we had our safety talk on the steps outside the Aquatic centre. Finally we got changed and rushed into the swimming pool. There was a jacuzzi, a wave pool, a lazy river, and loads of slides like the ‘Dark Hole’, the ‘Green Giant’, the ‘Flow Rider’ and the ‘Master Blaster’. The ‘Dark Hole’ slide was the best because it was so fast and all the other ones were quite slow. Once when we were in the pool, an alarm went off and we had to evacuate. But it was a false alarm and we were allowed back in again for another hour or so. Eventually, we had to get changed in the dressing rooms and have our lunch outside on the benches. At twenty to two we got on the bus again and arrived back at the school at ten past two. We were all wrecked. We went back to our classrooms and we played chess, cards, lego and chilled out until school was finished. The best thing was WE HAD NO HOMEWORK!!!! It was a great day. Thanks to Ms. Collins and the other teachers for letting us go, and to the great assistants Esther and Julie aswell.
