Staff And Students Escape The Half Term Rain
During the May half term I had the absolute pleasure of taking 27 students to Adventure International in Bude for a week of action packed, adrenaline fuelled fun.
During the May half term I had the absolute pleasure of taking 27 students to Adventure International in Bude for a week of action packed, adrenaline fuelled fun. The weather did not disappoint, and you’ll all be pleased to know that whilst it was raining and cold in Kent we were all basking in glorious sunshine on the North Cornwall coast! The students enjoyed activities such as surfing, mountain boarding, kayaking, canoeing, high ropes and body boarding to name but a few. The evenings were also filled with activities and it was great to see so many of the students participating in karaoke, the talent show and the 5 aside football match. It didn’t take very long for sleep to set in at bedtime every evening!
Despite a horrendous 10 hour coach journey home the students did not falter in their positive spirit and the coach drivers who took us to and from Bude both commented on how well behaved the students were and would wish that all schools had such a well-oiled machine for trip journeys! The coach finally pulled in gone 10pm at Fulston and it was great to hear so many positive stories being told to parents with beaming faces of the students and parents alike.
The trip would not have been so successful without the dedication of the staff that came, particularly this year, where they had to give up their half term holiday! The dedication shown by the team was immeasurable so special thanks goes to Mrs Relf, Mrs Crawford, Mr Patey, Mr Rayfield and Miss Davies.
Here’s to another successful trip next May half-term!
