This weekend for the first time in many years the school’s boarders enjoyed Saturday school with a difference! As part of our return to full boarding, STEAM school is available every Saturday morning during which time children develop their skill set in engineering through a series of fun challenges. This term the children are entering the First Lego League competition where they will have to program robots to complete a series of tasks at the regional tournament which takes place in December!
Then, with hardly time to take a breath it was all aboard the school bus to Eithad Stadium to be a part of a crowd of 31,000 where Manchester City women were playing Manchester United women in the first Women’s Super League derby.
Sunday dawned and it was off to Alton Towers for the Terra Nova boarders. Only the girls would have a picture taken, the boys were too busy racing from ride to ride to stand still! It has undoubtedly been a busy first weekend for the boarding community but a very happy one!
