Junior Boy’s Boarding Blog: 18 June

All of the boys in the house have been busy this week with their internal school exams.

Prep times have been used to good effect as the boys work their way through their revision timetables. There was a collective sigh on Friday after the exams concluded.

The outing this week was a ‘big hit!’ The boys were taken to the Holywell Bay 18 hole pitch and putt course. There were some very questionable techniques on show during the afternoon and a few lost golf balls too. Nonetheless, the boys had a great time.
Before leaving, I offered a prize for the winning score. This was a superb round of 71 by Constantin, congratulations to him.

Holywell Bay is situated on Cornwall’s North coast 4 miles from Newquay. A picturesque links course that has some stunning views of the Cornish coast. The boys have requested a return trip if we can squeeze one in before the end of term.

The house was quieter than normal, as three of the boys had received invites to stay with some of their day pupil friends. The evening was spent with some traditional favourites: movies and the obligatory pizzas and role-playing games. It was also pleasing to note that some were completing schoolwork on the computers in the house.

Sunday has turned into a relaxing day. After a very hearty brunch, the boys have completed some much required tidying around the common areas of the house. During the day, we welcomed some Pentreve boarders to play a few games of table football, quite apt, as the World Cup has just started.

Supper today was a barbeque. There was plenty of food on offer; the boys particularly enjoyed the tasty homemade beef burgers, dogs and steaks followed by some great rocky road.

This was a great way to end and enjoyable weekend
