National Boarding Week Fun

Boarding pupils sat at picnic table in grounds of boarding houseWe celebrated National Boarding Week with a wide range of events reflecting the fun and camaraderie of the boarding community, as well as the great facilities they enjoy.

A series of team races and challenges, including an obstacle race, kicked off the week, then boarders had a giggle trying to match a selection of baby faces (some of which were very ‘interesting!’), with current staff. A whole-campus treasure hunt brought out boarders’ competitive nature as they fathomed out riddles to find the hidden treasure.

On Thursday the ever-popular Boarders’ BBQ met up to expectations, with the entire boarding community celebrating everything that makes boarding great at Pock. Friday night was movie night, then Dolman House (junior boys) and Orchard House (junior girls) were filled with prep boarders’ friends invited to stay over and get a flavour of boarding life.
