To emphasise the principle of ‘bouncing back’, all girls were given a bouncy ball, to keep them entertained during breaks within the day. Other opportunities included: movies and comedy programmes in the Lecture Theatre, Board Games, a Knitting workshop, Smoothie making, Cross Country Lite, a talk from a Sixth Former about overcoming stage fright, as well as an Assault Course activity. On Friday, the Thirds ran a Samosa stall at lunchtime in support of the charity, Lepra and we were also joined by a representative from the Salus Foundation, who offered Indian Head Massage sessions to staff.
