A trip into Swindon for a spot of ice skating was the perfect start to a fun weekend for the Hatherop boarders. It was nice to see some day pupils coming in for the trip as well. Back to the castle, and it was pamper time! Everyone got involved in the hairspray, make-up, face pack, manicure and pedicure extravaganza. Everyone including Mr Holmes, who despite being some considerable way out of his comfort zone, seemed to enjoy the fun, although the mission to make him look 21 again may not have been entirely successful. The children were hoping that Mr Holmes would be too busy organising Monday morning assembly to remember that he still had pink and purple nail varnish on his fingers!
The pyjama breakfast was a relaxed affair on Sunday morning, before the boarders headed off into Cirencester this time, for shopping and pottery painting. Hatherop boarders certainly love their action packed weekends getting out and about, but nothing beats fun at the castle with their big boarding family.
