Year 8 Big Weekend

It was a fantastic final Big Weekend for the Year 8 boys. It began on Friday night with ‘Downe House Does Wimbledon’. The boys enjoyed mixed doubles, aiming for the prize of ‘Future Wimbledon Champion’ and the much more important accolade of ‘Best Turned Out’. A delicious BBQ was followed by the obligatory strawberries and cream, and a couple more sets of tennis before the very long goodbyes. A huge thank you to Downe House for hosting the evening.

On Saturday evening the boys headed to Gravity Force in Camberley where they demonstrated some fearless airborne moves, making me feel twice my age in the process. Even Mr Baxter got some air, rekindling the champion gymnast days of his youth. On Sunday the boys came back down to earth with some games in the sports hall, a swim and a trip to Newbury to watch Pitch Perfect 2. The Y8 boys were marvellous company, as they have been all year, and thank you to all the staff involved for making it such an enjoyable few days.
