Life's a Beach!

Monday, January 15, 2018 by Clare Masters

The first week back is always an exhausting one, and by Friday we had some very tired children (and staff!).

So, a really lazy weekend was in order. It was business as usual on Saturday, with activities and sports training, and then on Sunday we all headed out to the beach.

I think our Gap students were somewhat unimpressed by our beach! Minehead is cold, windy and very grey compared to the golden beaches of Australia and South Africa! No 'barbie' for them, just a pack lunch on the sea front!

Quite frankly I have a feeling that they think that we are slightly mad! But, nevertheless, the cold, brisk air blew away the cobwebs and brought a little colour (possibly chilblains) to our cheeks. Even Snoops enjoyed running along the beach and getting a natural blow-dry from the wind!

We do look forward to showing our Gap students more South West delights when spring arrives ... the beaches certainly look better when the sun is shining down, and who can say no to an ice-cream or two?
