It's Party Time!
Published on: Friday, October 18, 2019
A short but sweet entry this week! We started the weekend off celebrating Gabriel’s 12th birthday with all the Year 8 girls and boys watching a movie and devouring pizzas. Meanwhile, Sunday was spent lazing around playing cards and watching rugby, followed by a trip to Flip Out in the afternoon which exhausted them perfectly, resulting in a quiet evening (wahoo!).
We wish everyone a happy and relaxing half term!
Boarding Movie Night Proves Popular
Published on: Tuesday, October 8, 2019
Last Friday night the boarding house was buzzing as 72 children attended our popular move night celebration - and what an evening it was! Starting with hot dog and chips, the children all gathered in the Arts Centre clutching their boxes of popcorn and for over 2 hours silence ascended, every houseparent’s dream! Ice creams were served up half way through the film, and credits began to roll I thought the nightmare would begin. How wrong was I?! Every child was impeccably behaved, and by 9.15pm there was not a sound to be heard.
We sat and waited but by 11.00pm we realised that no trouble was going to be had and we had what can only be described as a bunch of angels sleeping over. The icing on the cake was that the first noise I heard on Saturday morning was at 7.10am - miracles do happen! So not to be put off, I am already planning a Christmas movie night and I can’t wait to have a full house again. A huge thank you to all the boarding staff, but particularly to all of the children as they were the ones that made the evening such an enjoyable one.
