Boarding trip to Kanchanaburi

This half term a whooping 34 boarders joined staff on a trip to Kanchanaburi. Despite a few very heavy down pours we had quite an adventure, involving both fun and educational activities, whilst appreciating the history of the region.

Mr Goodenough, head of sports, coordinated a game of bubble football, which all got involved in. This sport of bouncing around in inflatable giant balls led us all to be pretty muddy, with laughs all round.

We visited the Erawan falls, where boarders clambered up the levels of the falls and some brave souls took a dip in the fresh water. A trip to the death railway, museum and POW cemetery in town, helped boarders appreciate the tragic history of the area, and the stories of survival from the second world war era.

We rounded up the trip but jetting along the river to a lovely spa, where the boarders relaxed their weary muscles in the thermal waters, whilst some others took their chances at the fish spa, where little fish cleaned their toes!!

The trip was my first as head of girls boarding and gave me a great change to get to know some of the students better, whilst seeing them away from school from this time. I look forward to the next.

Bobbling Along in Boarding

Last weekend we welcomed Bangkok Bobble Football to our boarding campus. Twelve of our students had great fun bumping into each other playing football inside giant inflatable bubbles. The staff were happy to get involved too, and students enjoyed trying to knock them over! Ichigo was the only girl, and did a great job taking on the boys, managing to knock some of them over. She did end up upside down a few times herself though!

 

The rain has hampered many of our outdoor activity plans. Most evenings sports activities on the grass have had to be changed to indoor ones, and one of weekend cycling trips had to be postponed in favour of a dry trip to the mall instead. With a miserable forecast for the coming week we have also had to postpone our hotly anticipated ‘Staff vs Boarders’ sports evening until after the half term break in November. Our boarders are disappointed, but it gives the staff more chance to practice so it can be a closer game!

New Captains and Vice Captains of Boarding

We were also proud to present our new Captains and Vice Captains of Boarding with their badges in a Secondary assembly, deservedly recognising their achievements in front of the school. We hope they wear them with pride and continue to serve the Boarding House well.
