Perhaps even a bit too busy if Im honest! The weekend started with a fairly laid back evening on Friday: gym after school with Deb and then basketball in the stadium. Saturday was a busy day for our numerous netball players who are getting closer to victory each week. Meanwhile back in boarding two groups of very industrious boarders beavered away most of the day baking cakes for the 12 Hour Sports and finishing the painting of the team flag, while other groups prepared for our boarders three course dinner making sushi, salad and setting elegant tables. All the hard work on Saturday was worth it as the girls enjoyed a lovely meal over in the Food Tech area on Saturday evening with their chosen menu of: sushi, garlic bread, home made pizzas and salad, meringue nests and cheesecake. In between courses they enjoyed a couple of fun games: heads down thumbs up suggested by Mikeely and one truth two lies suggested by Kate, which everyone seemed to get really involved in. On Sunday it was up bright and early for our 12 Hour Sports team. It was wonderful to see them over the preceding two weeks building team spirit as they worked on their hand painted T shirts and flag and they looked great. Their efforts were justifiably rewarded when they won the prize for the best flag. They played hard throughout the day and secured a couple of victories against teams who were often a lot older and male! I was proud of the whole team but I would just like to make special mention of Helena, our Boarding Captain, who showed great leadership both on the day and in the two weeks leading up to it. On Sunday we were up early and off again. I had originally intended a short picnic lunch somewhere close because of the sport the previous day, but the girls were keen to go to Ormiston Gorge so off we went. Its such a beautiful destination that its always worth the drive and despite pouring with rain just before daybreak the weather was kind to us. In fact it was perfect. Everyone enjoyed the picnic and then while some boarders played football or wan dered along by the water another group climbed up to the Ghost Gum to be awarded with a stunning view. It was a tired but happy group who arrived back in boarding just before dinner on Monday, in time to get organised and ready for school next day.
