Departments arrange small trips throughout the year but the main S1 trip is to the Badaguish Outdoor Centre, near Aviemore, in May. School trips are good fun and a lovely time to make friends.
This is an overnight trip and it is filled with fun activities. On the first day you get a minibus from school to the centre and then do a hill walk. There are activities in the evening followed by a barbeque.
The next day you do mountain biking and watersports, such as canoeing and kayaking, on Loch Morlich.
To go there is a payment of £45 which can be paid in two parts. It is well worth the money as everyone enjoys themselves. The Parents Fundraising committee pays for the rest of the trip. They are called MAFIA – Millburn Academy Friends in Action.
Videos are taken on this trip and you will see them in S1 before you go.
You can go on a ski trip in second year, but you book your place in S1. You usually fly to France and are there for a week in February.
