Snow At The GrangeFriday, February 8, 2019
On Friday, after a much anticipated wait, snow finally fell at The Grange. This brought delight to many of our students as they enjoyed an extended tutor time in which they headed out onto the lawn for a snowball fight. Best, Adrian and Karl then set about constructing a giant snowman, complete with props. Not put off by the cold weather, the group polished off several tubs of different flavoured ice cream, as Mrs Shearman our House Mistress held an ice cream night on Saturday evening.
Thankfully, the snow and ice had melted away by Sunday which allowed us to head to the village church for a family service led by Tracey Hallett. Several of the students read pieces out loud to the congregation and participated in discussions, around the theme of ‘Loving your Neighbour’. We also listened as Cindy played piano beautifully to the group. The students were encouraged to think of random acts of kindness that they could instigate and write them down on heart shaped pieces of paper. These were then placed on a tree in the centre of the aisle. At the end of the service the students took a different act of kindness away from the tree to repay to their communities both in and outside the school in the future. In the afternoon, students from Foxcombe and the senior school met up at Flip Out in Wellington, where they spent two hours bouncing to great heights on the trampolines and attempting the various different obstacle courses.
