Great fun was had decorating the boarding house last night. Barney and Bilbo were 'tinsel-ed' and not one, not two but three trees were decorated. Homemade gingerbread men, cookies, hot chocolate, whipped cream and marshmallows were enjoyed by all!
The singing Santa (thanks, Mrs Jones) was a roaring success and provided great entertainment as did 'Jingle Bells' with Mr Vella! It was great to be joined by nearly 20 additional boarders who all got well and truly stuck in!
Well done, everybody!
All the boys in Years 7 & 8 were fortunate to meet Richie McCaw this afternoon at RAF Coningsby. Richie is the current All Blacks rugby captain and has just celebrated his 100th cap as captain – an incredible achievement. All the boys had the opportunity to meet Richie individually and to share a few words with him. This was a super occasion that the boys will not forget! Lots more photos available via the school website.
Whether your child is a regular boarder or not, book your child in for a fun night of Christmas crafts, treats, fun and song.
We will be decorating the school christmas tree as well as the boarding house. There will be hot chocolate and marshmallows and other Christmas treats. The night will culminate in a big sing-song around the tree with Mr Vella on the guitar!
Book your place now to make sure we don't run out of marshmallows! Barney and Bilbo will be there to help with the tinsel...don't miss out.
Assembly on Friday was enhanced by a fantastic and inspirational speech by Matt Hampson. Both parents and pupils alike were touched by his ability to share his story about his life changing injury and how he is now able to help others who have suffered injuries through sport. The Head Boy and Girl presented him with a cheque for £1165 raised through the St. Hugh's fun run.
