And so to the first weekend in the boarding house and a totally new set of boys apart from Shin! We have also welcomed into Pentreve, Daniel as a weekly boarder from a day boy, Tom as a Flexi Boarder on Wednesdays and Rowan as a Day Boarder. I hope that they all have a super time with us in Pentreve and settle really quickly.
The house will be another vibrant mix of nationalities, with boys from Thailand, Hong Kong, Spain, Germany, France and the UK.
The first weekend was about learning the ropes and we had a session from 8-9 in the amazing Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre on Friday, followed by exploring the town on Saturday and watching the Former Pupils matches in the afternoon.
We were straight into the Pizza and DVD ritual on Saturday night and they went down very well. Sunday was the first brunch and boarders outing and we did not break with tradition and so it was to Wadebridge and the ‘Camel Trail’ to Padstow once more. The boys dispatched the ride in quick time then explored Padstow. Some had Rick Steins chips and some just ate ice cream…why not?!
We look forward to a productive term on all fronts, to more outings, to reaching the academic targets set and to making some good friends….and maybe the odd Domino’s pizza or 2!!
