On Saturday 6th June the younger boarders left those with exams to study and went on a trip to Thrigby Hall. They had a wonderful time walking the treetops walk and coming face to face with monkeys and big cats…although they were very quiet so as not to wake the tiger that was fast asleep only inches in front of them!
The swamp house was a very popular part of the afternoon with the giant alligators and crocodiles, not to mention the enormous snakes. Miss Cushing and Mrs Jones did THAT part of the trip VERY quickly as neither is a fan of snakes! The weather was gorgeously sunny and hot and so a picnic lunch was had on the grass before meeting Monty the Cockatoo and seeing him dance.
