July 5, 2018

Day Four on our Ballard Year 7 Bude Trip

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

Another brilliant day! The pupils have been throwing themselves into all activities, and have given everything their best efforts today.

All smile for the camera!

Today saw the pupils taking part in caving, canoeing, mountain boarding and dragon boating.

The 7am swim or run was made by all the pupils, and even though tiredness is starting to set in, all either ran or took the plunge with a smile on their face! Mr H and myself made the swim, whereas Mrs T and Mrs G sustained mysterious muscle strains which meant they didn’t make it… tomorrow promises to be a fantastic day, with some super activities on offer and even though all the pupils are feeling tired, I know they will give it their best efforts.

Tomorrow evening is awards night, always a super occasion, and the pupils are really excited for this! Lots of pupils again overcame fears today and it’s been brilliant on the trip to see so many pupils throwing themselves into activities even though they are a bit scared about what they have to do.

I know the next two days are going to be as great as the rest of the week.

Stay tuned!
