Boarders head to Funkys


Yesterday our boarders visited their favourite skating venue, Funkys.  The disco was in full swing and the girls raced each other and took part in the games and challenges the skating staff set them. After a jam-packed two hours everyone was simply too tired to move!

Boarders bowled over!

The start of a new term means a whole new programme of trips and activities for the boarders. We started the term with a trip to a local bowling alley last weekend. The girls divided into two teams and spent a very noisy and happy couple of hours cheering each other on, trying not to laugh too much when the ball decided to do its own thing!  Luckily, the side barriers were put up for the second game and so the points were a lot higher, although the girls maintain that this is because the milkshakes and burgers they were eating helped them to aim better…

Boarders head to Funky Monkeys

Last weekend the boarders went roller skating at Funky Monkeys. It’s fair to say that it was a mixed ability group from the semi-professional Khloe and Mrs Wright to the barely upright who were skating for the first time. Inspite of the odd bump and bruise a good time was had by all.

Personally, I would have loved to join in but someone had to remain on terra firma for health and safety reasons. (Well, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!) See more photos here.

Boarders get their skates on

Over the weekend our boarders had a chance to test their grace, balance and agility while moving at high-speed on 4 small wheels. Needless to say some of the girls probably spent almost as much time sitting on the ground as they did edging their way around the rink!

We’re glad to report that everyone returned home in one (slightly bruised) piece. See all the photos from their trip to the rink.Boarders-roller-skating11Boarders-roller-skating15Boarders-roller-skating9Boarders-roller-skating12
