Our boarders returned last week refreshed and eager to start a new year after the Summer holidays.
This weekend we all went to Great Yarmouth to visit the circus at the Hippodrome. There were some pre-trip nerves about scary clowns but fortunately they did not appear! We did however get soaked with the traditional buckets of water. The girls particularly enjoyed the talented trampolinist and the “Wheel of Death” acts.
We also enjoyed some unseasonably warm weather over the weekend so the girls spent lots of time outside enjoying the beautiful school grounds. Winnie and Bubbles, our guinea pigs, also enjoyed the weather in their outside hutch and out on the lawn.
