What a credit the children who went on the Family Trip last week were to themselves, their families, the school and the wider community!
We were all quite excited as we boarded the coach and settled down ready for the journey to Thirsk. When we arrived, we were treated to a visit to the petting shed where we saw guinea pigs and goats, rabbits and a pig called Georgi who was only interested in the pellets that were around, before we went to play in the barn. Then we began to explore the great outdoors and discovered alapachas, wallabies, goats and highland cattle all of whom were eager to see us on account of the food we had for them. Having spent a long time feeding the animals, we were all quite grateful for the chance to sit down and enjoy our picnics in the café. Once we had refuelled, there was plenty of time to play in the playground, brave the barrel run, race on go-karts and explore the sandpit.
All too soon, it was time to get back on the coach where there were lots of sleepy smiles. Nevertheless, the weather had been kind and everyone had had a fabulous day.
Special thanks go to the staff who supported us and made it happen : Mrs Dunphy, Mrs Swailes, Mrs Ward, Miss Corbett, Miss Grindle, Mrs Sowden, Mr Dixon and Mrs Sketchley.
