Some quotes from the girls about yesterday:
Start off with the birthday girl in 6H, Renee:
I had a great birthday, there was a banner in my room when I woke up from my room mates and they all had a small present to give me, which was great. The dorm is really good fun.
I loved quad biking because I didn't crash and I overcame my fear of heights in abseiling. I learnt loads during the trip down the cave. The best part of the day was the beach as I got to make sandcastles! In the evening I had some cake with all my class.
Now, another class-Alice 6R:
I really enjoyed zip wire, it was scary but really fun. The 1st go the instructor pushed me, but then I let myself go the second time. I loved night line, it was muddy and I was blind-folded. We first played a game called find the animal noise-which was really funny! The dorms have really thin walls, but we have won our kit-kats!
I love free time as well as I get to play basketball and the boys will even let us play!!
Finally, Hannah 6Q:
I liked leap of faith the best, it was really scary, but I managed to get all the way to the top. I also really liked caving, but it hurt my back a bit as it was underground. The go-karts went really fast, but unfortunately you had to slow down at the corners.
I really like the fame game evening activity, as we got to do silly things in front of an audience.
Well, there we go, the girls seem to be having a great time. Quotes from the boys later today.
The sun is out and everyone is having a great time, all children are on activities-no sickness!! 6H have sampled the amazing 3G swing, with video evidence-even of the teachers.
A few more kit-kats won by the girls, the boys haven't quite reached those dizzy heights yet!
We were interrupted in the staffroom last night at around 9.30pm with a knock at the door and "Come quick, there is spider in a room and we need some help". Needless to say sympathy wasn't in great supply from the teachers, although Miss Blake, being a trained first aider tackled the hideous problem!!
