Year 7 Trip 2018 – Bude – Blog Five

July 5, 2018

Day Five on our Ballard Year 7 Bude Trip

For more from our Year 7 Bude trip, do see their Blog one, Blog two, Blog three. and Blog four.

A brilliant final full day in Bude!

The day’s activities

The day again started early with a swim or a run in the sun. It was a beautiful morning in the sun and the run and swim was enjoyed by all pupils.

Happy birthday!

Today saw a birthday for one of the Ballard pupils, and we started the day off with balloons, birthday banners and cards and prezzies! Later in the day we enjoyed birthday cake and a very enthusiastic singing of ‘Happy Birthday’!

The pupils took part in bodyboarding, high ropes, climbing and abseiling and team trail, depending what group the pupils are in.


As staff we were extremely proud of the Ballard pupils today, as a staff member from another school commented that our pupils are very polite, well mannered and helpful. All week the pupils have been brilliant and a credit to Ballard.

Tonight sees presentation night, where the pupils have a great celebration of their week and can potentially win some different awards. A tough choice for the instructors as all the Ballard pupils have been super all week!

The pupils are looking forward to seeing everyone back at home, but we still have two really fun activities to come tomorrow morning, before the journey home.

We will clarion call all parents what time we are due to be arriving at Ballard, traffic dependent. Stay tuned for one more blog tomorrow!
