Wonderful Week 2019 Day Four
It’s the penultimate day of the Wonderful Week extravaganza and it’s been another day of fun in the sun!
Today we welcome back the Duke of Edinburgh group as they successfully completed their gruelling expedition for the Bronze Award. Meanwhile last night, over in the capital city, they dined with the stars in Planet Hollywood before a night of laughter at a comedy show. Today they explored Covent Garden before making their way back to St Mary’s. In Barcelona, the group were able to soak up some last rays of sunshine ahead of their flight home this afternoon.
Back at St Mary’s, at Make It Trend, the fashionistas have been creating bespoke clothing as they upcycled leggings, t-shirts and pumps. Strictly Blackpool have been exploring the historic trams and climbed on board for a ride on the Great Western Train before visiting the world famous Blackpool Tower ballroom. After visiting universities yesterday, the Sixth Form group have made their first steps towards their own university applications as they unpick how to write a successful personal statement.
Work experience continues to be a roaring success with Millie Rose and Azzurra perfecting their customer service skills at Topshop and Charlotte at Clarks impressing staff and customers alike. Over at Sports and Leisure, they have had an eventful day at laser tag before heading over to the escape room and then finally being bowled over at MFA Bowl. Xtreme Action have continued their thrilling week of activities by spending the day at Laser Quest, Blackpool. The Prop Making group have made their finishing touches to their designs as they tirelessly craft their creations, such as Ethan’s Templar helmet. In the Dance Studio, street dance has descended upon the Dance group as they get ready for their Friday showcase. The group have choreographed their own routines and are finalising the finishing touches.
It has been a day of baking and decorating in the Bake Off group with icing, chocolate, sprinkles, cones and strawberries galore. Needless to say, all students involved have been ‘Star Bakers’ with some budding culinary experts in the making. In Waddecar, Year 7 students enjoyed a fish supper cooked by the fabulous Miss Hankovics and a hot chocolate before settling down for their first night camping.
We sadly only have one day left of Wonderful Week but we can’t wait to finish on a high!
