Excitement and adventure awaited the 59 second years who travelled to Wales in the second week of the Easter holiday. Under the expert instruction of the staff of Plas Pencelli Outdoor Education Centre, the boys enjoyed canoeing, caving, climbing, kayaking and mountain walking in the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons with everyone reaching the peak of Pen y fan, the highest point in southern Britain. The highlight for many was the gorge walk on the final morning which involved walking under waterfalls and sliding down river beds. All the boys pushed themselves outside their comfort zones (as indeed did the 5 teachers accompanying them!) and really enjoyed their first opportunity to have a residential trip while at Abingdon.
