Snoops' First Residential | King's Hall School Taunton

Hi there everyone,

Last week I said I would let you know about my first ever residential trip. Well here I am at New Barn with my Year 4 friends. I am having a fantastic time and I can’t begin to tell you how much I’m enjoying the team building challenges. Although my official capacity on the trip is ‘Chief Pastoral Carer’, I have received way more than my fair share of love and affection in return.

Unfortunately I had to opt out of the pottery making session as Mrs Willmott said it would be far too messy for my furry paws. I did remind her that I’d brought my doggy shampoo but she said that was for fox poo emergencies only! We all stayed together in the barn and the evening was full of fun and laughter. It’s a shame the Year 5 pupils visited Kilve at the same time this week as I would have loved to accompany them too.

To make up for it, I’ll let you into a little secret! I’m working up to the ski trip. I simply love the snow, and taking into consideration that I’m fast becoming a skilled stand-up paddle boarder, I have a burning ambition to try snowboarding. Unlike humans, dogs do not suffer from the limitations of language barriers so I can help translate any European country!

Over and out,

Snoops x
