A Lovely, Leisurely, Long Weekend
Published on: Friday, May 7, 2021
Last weekend was our long weekend. While most of the boarders went home, 10 children stayed in school and what a treat they had.
Friday night was 'pizza night' courtesy of Papa John’s – they were delicious! On Saturday morning we went to Vivary Park were the children did the tree top adventures, the low ropes, high ropes, the climbing wall and the jump. They were amazing, fearless and courageous – I however had both feet firmly on the ground and felt really quite sick watching them. When I asked one of the children did they like the “jump” he replied, “No, I thought I was going to die!” A big shout out to Carter and Miss B, the only ones to reach the top of the climbing wall. I was so proud of them, all literally achieving such great heights. This was followed by a well-deserved picnic, football in the park and rounded off with an ice-cream.
On Sunday we made the most of the outdoors, knowing rain was on the way. We had a huge BBQ in the woods along with lots of garden games and even fitted in a swim in our wonderfully heated outdoor pool. Another late night led to a very leisurely breakfast late on Monday morning. The weather was atrocious so an indoor day of 'Sardines' and 'Hide and Seek' making the most of the indoor space. We did eventually find everyone (!) and sat down to enjoy hearty plates of lasagne, garlic bread and salad followed by strawberries and ice-cream. It was an absolute pleasure to spend the weekend with the children and I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did.
