Heading off to Kilbowie Outdoor centre, Oban. All North Lanarkshire Council Primary 7s visit for a week of outdoor team building. I attended for a week last year with a cluster of local schools and have been asked to be there again this week. I am chaplain of schools that are staying and it gives a great opportunity to get to know these children and build up relationships with them before High schools.
As I have visited these schools for years I know the P7s very well and as I am also chaplain of the Secondary schools they will be moving to, keeping these relationships is very important.
It's a great privilege to have this invitation and the opportunities in the Gospel to the children, teachers who accompany them and the permanent members of Kilbowie staff are great. I would appreciate your prayers.
Last year it was gorgeous August weather however, November in Oban kayaking, gorge walking, hill walking and white water rafting seems less appealing !!!
