Senior School

Summer co-curricular programme begins

The summer programme of Wednesday Afternoon Activities kicked off this week on a warm and hazy day.

The sport fields were busy with rounders, athletics, tennis, hockey, football, military fitness, and even frisbee throwing.

In the Fencing Centre a new group of fencers got to grips with the basics of the sport and learned how to don their protective equipment.

In the swimming pool, 1st Years were some of the first to have a dip in the newly refurbished pool, perfecting their strokes and techniques.

As always the smells wafting from the Cookery School were tempting. On the menu this week was a tomato soup with rosemary focaccia bread, and plenty of it! The young cooks learned the basics of prepping vegetables, how to peel, cut, and chop most effectively.

Elsewhere, pupils were beginning their crafty projects, deciding which artists inspired them and what designs they’d like to emulate in their pottery. Pupils learned how to do a basic weave which will later help them in making a piece of textile, whether that be accessories or a clothing item.
