It definitely was a case of "boys and girls (!) with their toys", when a race course was set up in the Sports Hall. The team taught the boarders how to drive the remote control cars and then the race was on. Completing lap after lap, burning rubber in their race to the checkered flag, the speed demons learned the true discipline of driving, and now have a new found respect for just how hard it is to park a car! The court marshals were on hand to ensure there was no dangerous driving, enabling everyone to stay on the right track!
A message from our Boarding Pup Snoops
I've started to wonder how everyone managed before my arrival? It might be a little presumptuous but I am beginning to consider myself indispensable! I now have important roles in many departments within the school and just last Saturday, Mrs Samuel was teaching me the finer detail of reception duty, and associated etiquette. I listened very carefully and was very attentive when she was giving instructions. By mutual agreement, though, we decided that it was better if I left the phone calls to her. I do, however, think I have the upper hand when it comes to meet and greet. Everyone who walks through the front door is as happy to see me, as I am them. I give my best waggy-tail greeting and I get tremendously fussed over in return. I hope Mrs Samuel wasn't offended but I didn't see one visitor pat her on the head or ruffle her hair. It has also come to my attention that a surprising number of you have the odd doggy treat lurking in the bottom of your pockets. Well done-keep it up!
