Trip to Thorpe Park
The Rotary Club of Great Britain once again invited Young People’s Academy to take part in their annual “Kids Day Out”. They kindly supplied us with tickets for Thorpe Park. We have been invited in previous years but this year they gave us more tickets so we were able to take years 7-10.
With days of rain beforehand, staff and students packed waterproof coats and hoped for the best. We were pleasantly surprised to find Thorpe Park hot and sunny and everyone was relieved the rain held off until home time.
Staff joined the students on some really thrill seeking rides .Students took delight in seeing some staff a little shaky after riding the likes of Stealth, Saw and Nemesis to name a few! Miss Gilbrys was dragged on to Tidal Wave as soon as we arrived and spent the day drying out and Mr Crowe was reported to be slightly green after being persuaded to go on stealth. After students begged Miss Johnson to stay on Rush , (as if once wasn’t enough), she was definitely looking disheveled and a bit wobbly!
Students agreed it was a great day out and staff really enjoyed seeing the students have such fun. The school are really grateful to The Rotary Club for this wonderful opportunity and everyone is counting the days until they can go again.
