Roller Skating and
a Moor Park victory!
What a fabulous weekend. The weather has been wet and wild
but that did not stop the 1st XV and Under 11s travelling 3 hours
for a superb couple of matches against Moor Park in the wet and cold. Both
teams played magnificent rugby with two wins from two. The bus journeys were
great fun with the boys singing all of the way and back at the top of their
voices with a much deserved trip to the Golden Arches on the way back.
It was an early start for the paintball party; Kyle,
Humphrey and Sammy all came back with great stories having had a great day. The
rest of the boarders enjoyed a lie in and a mouth-watering full English
breakfast before heading to the sports hall for a football tournament before
lunch. Those who didn’t fancy running wild in the sports hall had the
opportunity to make some jewellery with Miss Flack. An early lunch of toasties
and a chocolate pudding before we took ourselves back to the 80s and got ready
for an afternoon of roller skating.
It was great fun. Some opted for the traditional roller
skating with the rubber stoppers at the front but most chose the newer style roller
blades. The rink was huge and at first many of the boarders were dragging
themselves around the edge but before long there were boarders going backwards,
doing little jumps and flying round the rink without a care in the world. You
can’t go to one of these venues without a few mentions. Firstly we have our
Bampi on Blades award for the boarder with a lack of balance throughout the day
and that goes to William D. Next for the Most Stylish Skater and that must go
to Marta C who donned the old school quad skates and was doing circles, skating
backwards and impressing us with her style. The Most Improved Skater has to go
to Thomas H who clung on for dear life at the beginning but by the end was
confidently skating round with the rest of us.
A great afternoon and we took off back to School for some
free time before the most wonderful Sunday Roast, where we were joined by many
parents, grandparents and siblings. Toby de la B entertained us all during
pudding on his saxophone with Bridge Over Troubled Water.
A relaxed evening followed before a busy week ahead. Parents
please note that it is the Boarders’ Feast next Sunday for the full boarders.
Christmas Jumpers are greatly encouraged! There will therefore be no Sunday
Supper for parents but we very much looking forward to having you back in the
