Boarders’ Outing

The Saturday trip for the boarders this weekend was to Blickling Hall. They had the opportunity to explore the house and gardens, which were looking beautiful, and, since it was Mother’s Day on Sunday, they looked for gifts. They particularly liked the very cute Egyptian goslings, pictured below, that wandered past them in the grounds.

Saturday at the Ski Slope

On Friday night, the boarding house held a sleepover and were joined by some pupils from Year 9. On Saturday morning, we all went to the Norfolk Snowsports Club for a tubing session. For those of you who have never seen tubing before, you sit in what looks like a large inner tube and go down a ski slope! Everyone had a great time sliding and spinning down the slope individually and then together. The picture below shows some the students that took part.

Fabulous Fete!

So many visitors commented on the lovely, friendly atmosphere at our fete today – it really was a wonderful day and,  with the sun shining warmly for most of the time, the last-minute rain didn’t dampen our spirits! Thanks to the PA for organising such a great event, and thanks to all who came – we hope you all had a great time! We think the pictures say it all….

Boarders’ cycling adventures

This weekend the boarders went cycling in Thetford Forest. Luckily the rain stopped but there were plenty of puddles and we all got a bit muddy. Some of us were really fast and some of us (me!) were very rusty… but we all finished the course and had great fun.
