PlayBoard staff had a fun-filled weekend, attending the International Play Association Northern Ireland (IPA NI) Play Gathering at the beautiful Clandeboye Estate in Bangor.
Over two days we enjoyed great company, great food and great craic! Friday night was fright night, with ice-breakers and challenges in the dark, followed by storytelling around the camp fire. After a hearty breakfast on Saturday morning the Playworkers enjoyed a taste of the Clandeboye Nature Rangers Forest School, built dens in the forest and had lots of laughs role-playing.
The event was an opportunity for Playworkers to network, and gain new ideas to take back to enhance their outdoor play and out of schools provision.
We’re looking forward to seeing what future events are planned! Find out more about IPA NI and sign up for membership at https://ipa-ni.com/
