The boarding house was a hive of activity this weekend with a sleepover for day pupils from years 7 and 8 on Friday night, followed by a trip to Thrigby Hall on Saturday.
We began with a scavenger hunt, which involved a lot of running about and shouting, followed by a film and popcorn. A great time was had by everyone!
On Saturday at Thrigby Hall the big cats were definitely the favourites ,especially the tigers. We also made good use of the many play areas.
It was a real pleasure to have the day girls staying with us and we are looking forward to the next sleepover on Friday November 30th for years 9 and 10.

If you wish to attend any club or activity or would like further details please speak to the teacher/coach running the activity.
One of my colleagues has alerted me to a game called ‘Roblox’, which is widely played by children online. Apparently there have been numerous attempts to hack her children’s account for this game, which could potentially give a stranger the opportunity to impersonate the players. Luckily the attacks did not succeed as all the safeguards were in place.
I thought I would pass this on in case any pupils were playing this game. It seems the dangers of online gaming are growing – recent reports have pointed to a sort of addiction that can afflict young people, with damaging effects on their progress and general wellbeing. There is also the danger of online predators trying to gain access to children’s accounts.
I am sure all our parents will ensure they are aware of these dangers and that parental controls are in place if pupils are participating in this activity.
Welcome back to another exciting school year full of learning and opportunities. I shall be out and about with the camera today to try to get some pictures of what is going on in all areas of the school so watch out for more photos on the blog later today.
