Wonderful Week 2019 Day One
Although the weather may not be wonderful today, it has truly been a wonderful start to Wonderful Week here at St Mary’s. With coaches galore, an abundance of residential trips waved goodbye to Blackpool as they safely set off to enjoy their residential trips. The Barcelona group were the first to say adiós in the early hours of the morning, followed by the city setters to London, the happy ‘glampers’ to Scotland and the first half of the Year 7 campers to Waddecar.
Meanwhile, back at St Mary’s the school bubbled with excitement as students enjoyed their first day of activities. The delicious scent of cookies tempted passers-by, the ballet group perfected their pirouettes, first aid classes were skilfully mastered, challenges and team building activities were accomplished and creations were designed, crafted and perfected. Outside of school, sixth formers were put through their paces and called to attention by the army as other Wonderful Week groups enjoyed wet and wild adventures at Blackpool Wake Park and Rock and River. Needless to say, it has been an eventful first day and we are so excited to see how the rest of the week unfolds!
