The Living Rainforest is home to 700 species of plants and animals. In its tropical glasshouses we enjoyed looking out for free roaming lizards, birds and butterflies never knowing where they would appear next! Plus monkeys, a sloth, an armadillo, toucans, and more.
As a school we recognise the ever increasing importance of the physical, mental and emotional well-being of our pupils and by dedicating a week to a timetable full of lessons and activities focusing on fitness, healthy eating and healthy lifestyles we hope we’ve encouraged the boys to begin lifelong healthy eating habits and lifestyles. Over the week they have also learnt that healthy living can be synonymous with fun and delicious food as everyone enjoyed taking part in the activities and experiences on offer.
On Tuesday 24th May, the Prep school boys had a special reason to get out of bed bright and early – it was the day of our visit to the famous Beaulieu motor museum in Hampshire. The coach journey whizzed by and soon the boys spotted the New Forest ponies, picturesque thatched cottages and sparkling lake and entered the gates of the museum with excitement. It was a fabulously sunny day and the children set off in groups to complete the various activities organised for them.
