Every September, the College's newest pupils are afforded the opportunity to attend a Residential at the local Ardnabannon Outdoor Pursuits Centre in Castlewellan.
We find the Residential to be hugely beneficial for pupils to make friends at an early juncture; starting into secondary school can be daunting but the shared experiences on these Residentials set the children in good stead for the forthcoming academic year.
Pupils can go river walking, kayaking, rock climbing, bouldering and even try their hand at archery.
At the end of the Residential pupils come back to Blackwater having formed bonds with their peers, accompanied by some exhausted teachers!
