The park of Thorpe
If you have done well in the year then you get to go to Thorpe park with 80 other kids. The number of points that represent achievement and good behaviour, directly effects if you get to go. This meant that some friends of mine who probably did deserve to go didn’t because at the point where all the points were counted up, they were having a bad week.
Having said this, those who did go (who did all deserve it, I wasn’t trying to suggest that they didn’t) had a great time. Most of us had been before without school so our group decided to go on some of the smaller rides to cut out long queuing times which meant that we couldn’t stick to the deadlines set by the school.
The way it worked was that there wad a base camp where the kids had to check into at given times but other than that, you were free to go. I went with some people that I don’t know as well as I would like to. This type of out of school but with people from school thing is perfect got making friends as it gives you a different atmosphere to see if someone is friendly. It also pushes you together with people who wouldn’t normally work together.
Very good day. I enjoyed it a lot.
