Storyline

It's the final complete day of the Outward Bound trip for class N2. Fay and Annette are worried about Diane's lack of appetite. Miss Mooney's attention on one of the Outward Bound instructors hasn't gone unnoticed. Roland's hurt his foot, and is rather happy to stay back in the kitchen baking bread. Diane, encouraged by the Outward Bound staff, finds she is better at canoing than she thought, and Mr. Baxter nearly chickens out when it comes to sliding down from a height. Zammo almost comes a cropper when his canoe turns over, but Diane raises the alarm in time. There's a final barn dance: Roly gets a Welsh dictionary from Mr. Price and Mr. Baxter gets a dance from Miss Mooney. Written by Geffers
