Sand, Sea And Sun For The Lower Sixth

THE LOWER SIXTH SPENT THEIR FIRST WEEKEND OF THE NEW TERM DOWN IN PEMBROKESHIRE AS THEY ENJOYED ALL THAT THE BEAUTIFUL WELSH COASTLINE HAD TO OFFER. MRS WILLIAMS, OUR SPANISH TEACHER, SENT BACK THIS REPORT!

This year’s Leadership course was another fun filled adventure weekend. All pupils must be praised for the way they immersed themselves in the activities and worked as a team.

Friday’s choppy conditions meant that climbing and kayaking were replaced with coasteering and surfing. If anything, the wind, the rain and the swell made the experience all that more exhilarating. The highlight of Mrs Williams’ trip was being joined by a beautiful seal at Whitesand’s Bay while she pretended to be a pro-surfer from Hawaii Five-O.

The sun beamed down on Pembrokeshire on Saturday morning as we once again donned our wetsuits and soggy trainers for another day of action. Mr Thomas had a fight with a rock and lost and Mr Goodrich decided to try and stand on his kayak which he was sharing with Rhiannon. If looks could kill!

Sunday dawned and we all wearily trudged off to our final activity, determined to make the most of the beautiful coastline before school beckoned again on Monday morning. Another choppy day made the water activities just that bit more thrilling and Mary Roberts definitely wins the prize for the most enthusiastic coasteerer! ‘This is so much fun’.

The weekend proved once again how important it is to work as a team. Our new Year 12 pupils showed their strengths and made the weekend such a success.
