Hawaiian Evening

Monday 21st January 2013


After all of the recent snow, the boarders experienced a change of climate on Saturday evening, as well as the chance to remember what summer can be. They entered Queen Anne’s version of a tropical island, including colourful leis, Hawaiian music and various reminders of a beach environment: decorations, outdoor chairs and large sun umbrella, beach towels and a meal of Hawaiian pizzas, salads, tropical fruit and flavoured ices.

A huge favourite was ‘Tiki’s bar’, where the girls mad their own ‘mocktails’ made from fruit juices, ice cream, toppings and pieces of fruit topped with umbrellas and straws.

After supper the two junior houses competed with each other in various island pursuits, which began with devising a name for their island and producing their national dress. In a very short time, two glamorous models displayed colourful tissue paper creations, and there was little to choose between them. After that, each island community displayed a welcoming dance and song, as well as designing and creating a model of their island and filling in a quiz.

The fun and games ended with two challenges – throwing balls through the mouth of the cardboard face of Tiki and a hula hoop competition. The overall scores were very close, with Maddock just ahead of Wilkins, but the second placed house did receive the healthier prize of tropical fruit.

The highlight of the evening was the disembarkation from their royal yacht of the Princes Harry and William, who judged the welcome song and dance.
