Family Camp Out

Last weekend saw the 2nd Annual Family Camp Out. Despite the inclement weather, the BBQ was fired up and the bar (for the parents!) was opened.

After a hearty burger and hot dog it was time for the much anticipated Danish Longball match between pupils and parents. Due to the number of children we had this year we had two innings. Year 7 and 8 handsomely beat the parents in the first innings and surprise, surprise the Year 6 and under also managed the same result. Perhaps it was because the parents had to play twice….?

After a quick ‘refreshment break’ whilst we lit the fire, all attendees gathered around the campfire for our now traditional song and skit. Hotel California was performed particularly well by the parents. No campfire would be complete without toasted marshmallows, hot chocolate and a ukulele – a great way to finish the night.

Following a brilliant night’s sleep, all piled into the dining room for a fantastic fried breakfast before parents spent some time with their children in the grounds, specifically the cricket nets.

Many thanks to the huge support from the parents and children who came along this year. We’ll order the sunshine for next year.
