It was a busy bank holiday weekend for our boarders the weekend before last, which started with a trip to Pleasurewood Hills and quickly confirmed the thrill-seekers among them! Not only did we have glorious sunshine, in comparison to some terrible weather of late, but the boarders had great fun, including getting soaked on the Log Flume.
After revising on Sunday, and taking time for some leisure as we usually do, students travelled to Aldeburgh on Monday for an afternoon of shopping and experiencing a traditional seaside town. Fish and chips were on the menu for lunch, eaten in the rain but nonetheless still very much enjoyed.
The most recent bank holiday weekend was spent watching the King’s Coronation broadcast together, ahead of having a go on the bouncy castle assault castle before donning Sumo fighting suits and challenging one another to what turned out to be exceptional fun rather than a wrestle! Everyone had a go, enjoying the opportunity to relax as well as burn off some energy.
Sunday, in contrast to Saturday from a weather perspective, was a beautiful day and after a traditional brunch the boarders took to the bouncy castle and sumo suits once again. Needless to say when the sun shines, the water pistols emerge, and so the biggest water fight broke out. Everyone dried off in time to enjoy a barbecue lunch on the Chapel lawn as well as street games.
On Monday most of our boarders took the opportunity to head into Ipswich to watch either the new Mario or Guardians of the Galaxy films at the cinema.
It’s been a busy but exciting and fun couple of weeks, and the boarders have certainly made the most of the extra days together and not let the weather deter them at all.
