The first weekend of boarding this term saw pupils going in different directions on various activities. The seniors took part in a trip to York with Mr Batchelor on Saturday, for a day of city sight seeing and shopping (including additions to Mr B’s rather colourful waistcoat and tie collection!) For the juniors, a trip into Whitby for the afternoon with Miss Anders, Miss Walker and Mr Maine to experience the counting of the 199 steps, a wander along the cobbles and of course a bag of chips down the Pier.
We certainly didn’t let the rain, thunder or lightening dampen our spirits but thought that we would perhaps save the beach for another day! As for Sunday, a trip to the cinema was called for to see Maze Runner 2 – a great film and an enjoyable afternoon.
