Our Weekend Rocked!
Published on: Monday, January 21, 2019
After a delicious breakfast on Sunday morning we were straight off to Exeter for a fun filled day of rock climbing at Clip 'n Climb. From the speed, agility and flexibility the children displayed, we are now convinced that 90% of the boarders must be related to Spider-Man, Mr Jones, Miss Macgregor and Miss Beecher, not so much!
The children spent the day conquering spherical climbs, racing the clock and attempting the stairway to heaven. They all had an absolute blast and can't wait to go back!
Published on: Monday, January 14, 2019With 56 boarders, casual boarders and a boarding dog the boarding house is buzzing. The first week back is always a shock to the system but it didn’t take
us long to get back into the swing of things.
This weekend we made the most of the mild weather and spent Sunday morning on the beach. The children had great fun paddling in the sea, rock climbing, wave dodging and playing football, rugby and frisbee. Once the games were over we settled down to a delicious picnic-, however I did get the feeling our Spanish pupils and our GAP student thought we were a little crazy!
We are very excited about all the lovely things we have for the term ahead!
A message from our boarding puppy Snoops....
I am happy to report that 2019 has started well for me. After a relaxing Christmas break I was very excited by the return of my boarding friends. There have been so many exciting things happening as well as new boarders joining our happy house. I like these human puppies very much; they are very playful!
The thing I enjoyed most this week was the School Weekly Run. I joined in with the Year 5/6 run on Tuesday and the senior run on Friday. It was immensely good fun and the children enjoyed having some canine competition. Having four legs put me at an advantage but unfortunately i did not come in first position, I've been told that winning isn't everything and we are all working on our personal bests. I've taken some advice from our top country runners and I feel in a strong position to improve my personal time. Their two top tips were, not to spend so much time sniffing in the hedges around the field perimeters and not to concern myself about the teachers who aren't managing to keep up!
