Boarding Weekend Activities
The high-light of the weekend of the boarders was going to the Snow Centre at Hemel Hempstead on Sunday.
Following the traditional leisurely start on Sunday morning and the habitual full English fry-up, Mrs. Attwood met the boys at 9am and took them all for a long walk round our beautiful grounds, which really are looking stunning at the moment. Wet shoes were laid out on the front steps to dry and the boys enjoyed some downtime on their devices before lunch.
After lunch, they all piled into the minibuses and drove to the Snow Centre at Hemel Hempstead. The boys were kitted up and those new to skiing all had a lesson while the more experienced skiers enjoyed the 150m of fresh indoor snow! I t was great fun and I was very impressed with the standard of some of our boys.
Unfortunately, some inclement English summer weather put paid to our planned boarders’ BBQ on Saturday night which was a shame, but the boys enjoyed watching the FA Cup Final and letting off some steam on the AWP.
