It’S Another Exciting Week At Christ College!

With the end of term approaching, pupils and staff have had a fun but busy week enjoying the various trips, tours and excursions planned for the final weeks of term.

At the beginning of the week, boys and girls from M9 set off on their trip to Belgium and France to visit the WW1 Battlefields, during which they will visit and place wreathes on the graves of former pupils of Christ College who made the ultimate sacrifice during the first world war. As well as the solemnity of the war graves, a visit to Paris and Euro Disney will compete the trip and see the pupils return on Saturday.

Lower Sixth Geographers have also ventured the Chamonix to explore the beauty and geography of the French Alps as part of their Geography A Level course.

It is perhaps Alway House, housing our Year 7 and 8 pupils, who are having the busiest week as they rehearse for the Year 7 and 8 production of Disney’s The Lion King this weekend. Interspersing the daily rehearsals, they’ve also been having lots of fun with the boarding pupils cutting loose after last weeks exams and heading off the Oaker Wood in Kingsland on the weekend to enjoy camping, BBQs and zip-wires! On Wednesday, they enjoyed Brecon’s very own beauty spot at the Promenade and Boat House where they enjoyed pedalos on the river Usk, picnics, water fights, ice creams and fresh strawberries. Much fun was had by all with some very wet but happy boys, girls, senior pupils and staff arriving back at Alway House.

On the sporting front, 20/20 cricket has been taking place on the stunning 1st XI pitch with Christ College battling Wellington School, Hereford Cathedral School and Gower College.
