On Sunday 8th the majority of the boarders ventured up into Fyling Hall’s deep dark woods (With members of staff of course!) for a truly hair-raising experience. With the boarders huddled together on the wooden seats surrounding the camp fire marshmallows were toasted, coca cola was drunk and ghost stories were exchanged. Whilst on this cosy sugar high, Iratxe promises me that she wasn’t scared, however she continued to mention that Oaklei (Year 8) was so scared that he managed to slip up the steps while scurrying away from Manfred’s atmospheric campfire music! Even though the younger boarders were able to postpone their evening homework session, they are glad that they attended this event-filled night, preparing themselves for Halloween festivities which are soon approaching!
