A wild start for our Prep Boarders

Posted: 3rd October 2020

Thone at Brean Sept 2020

At the start of each year, the Prep Boarding children eagerly await our annual trip to Brean Leisure Park with great excitement and anticipation.

The past year has flown by and we were excited to revisit the leisure park once again—with both existing and newer members of our boarding family.

The dodgems proved to be a firm favourite; our young drivers delighted in bumping into each other at every given opportunity; we are not entirely sure if they all got to grips with driving in the recommended direction! The Wild Water ride was also a definite hit, with log flumes, steep slopes and a colossal splash; we were fortunate that the sun was shining brightly, allowing everyone to dry out before getting back on the bus at the end of the day.

As you can only imagine, screams from the Year 4 girls could be heard across the entire park! Meanwhile, Miss Beck braved the rides with the Year 6 girls—which provided them with much  entertainment. The trip was a great success—spending quality time together as a boarding family, with fun and laughter at the heart of the experience. After all the sweet treats and rides, it was a miracle that only a few had green faces and with no further symptoms!
