ADVENTUROUS pupils have been dragon hunting.
Year 4 pupils enjoyed a three-day residential trip to the Conway Centre, Menai, last week.
The trip was led by teachers in collaboration with Liz Pritchford and Chester artist Hayley Wood.
Deputy headteacher Richard Smith said: “The theme of the trip was kept secret from the pupils.
“When the class arrived at the Conway Centre and unpacked, they found some very strange objects in their dormitories.
“These objects contained mysterious writing and the children were set on the task to crack the code to unlock the secret of their trip.
“They had the care for, and raise, a newly hatched baby dragon!”
During the next few days the children were trusted with a dragon egg and had to devise drama sketches and produce instructions on how to raise a baby dragon – in addition to creating the full-size dragon.
Mr Smith said: “One of the obvious highlights of the trip was the building of the dragon.
“The children worked extremely hard, often into the early evening, to get the dragon ready to bring back to school.”
The dragon, named Shar-Lax by the pupils, is on display in the main hall at the school.
