Ghyll Head 2013
Both of this year's Ghyll Head weekends for new Third Form girls were enjoyed under blue skies and glorious autumn sunshine.
On each of the two weekends (27-29 September and 4-6 October) the Third Formers, accompanied by their intrepid Form Tutors, Shadow Form Tutors and Upper Sixth Peer Supporters enjoyed an adventure-packed time in the Lake District. All girls participated enthusiastically in the activities and some made the most of every opportunity to get wet!
Head of Third Form Mrs Menzies said: "The girls worked so well in the all the team activities – it was heartening to see them supporting and encouraging one another."
"The beautiful Lake District provided an ideal backdrop for getting to know each other better and making new friends."
All the girls wrote poems about their experiences – here is a sample:
Whooshing down a zip wire,
Scrambling up a ghyll,
Jumping into a freezing lake,
Rowing until our arms ache.
Trying to find the number four,
Lying in the sunshine, that we all adore.
Gazing at the stars with awe
All wanting to stay a few days more!
