End of Term Activities before Easter Break
Monday 26th March 2018
In the week leading up to the Easter Holidays, the girls were able to unwind and relax with some exciting activites.
We saw the sports hall transform into a Roller Disco party for the houses to enjoy.
“The evening was very fun and exciting as many of us have never been roller skating before. We came in and were given the roller skates and were told to sit on the floor or the benches. Then we had a safety talk and were told how to stand up and what to do if we fell over. The sports hall was set up with lighting and music throughout the evening.
Once the skating started we played two games: Simon Says and Limbo. Then we skated again. It was really funny seeing the teachers skating too-they were not as good at most of the students! After the roller skating was finished we gave the skates back and went to our houses to have pizza. We ate lots of pizza and cake and went home.”

On Thursday the girls challenged the staff to a volleyball competition, which was raising money in aid of Sports Relief. It was a close match, with both sides putting in maximum efforts, but ultimately it was the staff who won for a second year in a row!
Later that day, in Holmes House, the girls were told there would be something special in the sit at 4.30pm. None of them had guessed there would be spiders, lizards, snakes and giant snails, among other things.
“It was an amazing experience, I got the chance to be so close to animals from all over the world. I also held some animals that I’ve never dared to touch before, and it helped me conquer some of my fears. I never imagined that I would be holding a tarantula in my hand, but I did it!”

On the final day we began with an assembly, highlighting all the achievements since the beginning of the term. On entering the school hall you were greeted by the Sixth Form offering free hugs, free high-fives and a good deed to complete.
We heard an update from the Head of Michell and Service Prefect, Heather A (U6), who spoke about the fundraising over the term, including the recent charity car wash which was in aid of Headway and Sue Ryder, and the volleyball match which raised money for Sports Aid. Next Jessica B (U6) and, Art Prefect, Holly U (U6) reflected on their A Level Art trip to St. Ives back earlier in the year. In sport, we saw girls recognised for going above and beyond this term,
