Year 8 Big Weekend

This weekend the Year 8 boys dressed to impress at the Casino Royale social with Downe House.  With Lynx and hair wax artfully applied, they looked incredibly sharp and dashing, whilst standing sipping mocktails beside a roulette wheel.  Seeing the boys look so grown up is a highlight of the year for the staff, who have known most of the boys since they were smaller and a little less debonair!  The ladies gave the boys a good run for their (fortunately not real) money, and it was a very close call at the end to see who had managed to rake in the most.

After waving the girls off, the boys were very good about clambering down from the dizzy heights that socialising with the girls had propelled them to and bed time was a sensible affair.  On Sunday morning, fuelled with sleep and a hearty cooked breakfast, the boys geared up to use Elstree’s grounds to full capacity in a 3 hour Lazer Tag extravaganza!  Starting in Plantation and then moving down to the school buildings, the boys had to combine stealth and tactics to succeed.  Some were more stealthy than others…

On Sunday afternoon the Full Boarders plus a few extra friends divided their time between relaxing, football and making a foot-golf course with Mr Williams!

 Another busy but satisfying weekend gone by and boys and staff alike were all ready for a Sunday night sleep ahead of another week! For more photos, please see the photo gallery on the website.
