BOARDING NEWS

 

Boarders visit The Scots School Highland Gathering

On a very warm Sunday 18th March, Lucinda Wells and I took all our Years 7 – 11 boarders to The Scots School for their Annual Highland Gathering. 

We left Saints’ at 11am and returned around 2.30pm. We watched many pipe bands perform and also some Highland dancing and some contemporary dancing performed by The Bathurst School of Dance – in which two of our boarders performed a duet – Amy Horne and Hannah Kelly.

There were “fun” activities throughout the day – such as rock-throwing, tug-of-war, cake throwing and a dog dress-up competition.

Some sunburnt faces and shoulders resulted from the boarders walking around as it turned out to be a 34 degree day! On our return to school some boarders cooled off with a dip in the pool.

Boarders' Outdoor Chapel Service

On Sunday 4th March, Father Paul treated all the boarders to an ice-cream at Annie’s before we headed down to the park adjacent to the Japanese Gardens, near the river.

Paul and I drove the school buses and Spencer Goddard (Head of Boys’ Boarding) came in his own car with his wife and 2 boys.

We had an outside “service” in lieu of being in Chapel with some boarders reading the prayers and Father Paul singing us a song and playing his guitar.

It was warm and sunny and we sat in the shade of the beautiful big trees. Some of the boarders then had a quick paddle in the river before we came back to school.

It was a very pleasant way to spend the afternoon before coming back to the dining room for dinner at the normal time of 6pm

Thank you Father Paul.

Mrs Gill McAllister (Head of Marsden House/Girls’ Boarding)


 

Valentine's Day Dinner

On Wednesday 14th February, the boarders had a wonderful dinner in the dining room to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Thank you to Matt Hitchens (Catering manager) for a lovely meal which the boarding house leaders chose – spring rolls, honey mustard chicken and chocolate pudding.

Our leaders are Anna Single and Jaz Johnston (Marsden House), and Joe Hodges and Braden Muller (Watson House). They also decorated the dining room with streamers and balloons.

Thank you to Jaz for taking the photos as unfortunately I had to take an injured student to the hospital and was there for a couple of hours, missing the festivities!

The girls gave each boy a red love-heart shaped card with a heart shaped lolliop and the boys gave the girls a little bag of chocolates and lollies.

Everyone made an effort to dress up very well for the occasion – well done to all.

Mrs Gill McAllister – Head of Marsden House/Girls’ Boarding
