Wonderful Week 2018 - Day 5 Update

Wonderful Week Day 5 

It’s the end of a wonderful week! The Sixth Form were off bright and early to visit Edge Hill University. They enjoyed looking around the campus and discussed what the university could offer them. The Year 7 camp returned from camp today – they had a great time sat round a camp fire, learning about bush craft, archery and enjoying the countryside.

The Football group continued to work with Fleetwood Town and the Sports and Leisure group spent the day ice-skating and at the sandcastle water park. Meanwhile, the London trip group arrived back in school and created a beautiful display showcasing their trip.

In St Mary’s Bake Off, the students completed their mood boards, did presentations and then had a celebratory lunch for all of their hard work. After lunch the Star Baker awards were presented to students who had shown exemplary skills. Well done to all involved!

The Challenge finished a fantastic day with a camp fire with smores and tasted marshmallows. They had a wonderful day doing the following activities: kayaking, wobbly water park, paddle boarding, windsurfing, climbing tower, leap of faith and the zip line. It’s safe to say that the students took all of the challenges in their strides. The staff at Galloway Activity Centre were incredibly impressed with their resilience and willingness to try new activities.

After a late night, the Barcelona students came back to school today buzzing with stories about their fabulous experiences. Many students talked about how much they enjoyed the sights and the theme park! All students headed outside to finish off the day with a lovely game of rounders in the sunshine.

Face Your Fears had a great day at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Extreme Action had another action-packed day at clip and climb. The props group had astounded both staff and students with the props they have made this week: they are learnt so much and clearly enjoyed their time getting creative. The Week of Culture group finished their week with a fashion show showcasing their wonderful new hair and makeup skills. Miss Abid and her sister very kindly brought in some dresses for the girls to wear and offered final makeup and hair masterclasses.

It’s truly been a wonderful week! We would like to thank all students for their participation in such a variety of activities and staff for organising such fantastic activities.
