Senior helpers at Saturday's Farr Out Challenge had the opportunity to board on the Friday night before. After helping Mr P set up around the school grounds, Forms 7 & 8's boarded the minibuses for a trip to Selkirk swimming pool. They spent an hour at the pool's fun session having fun on the inflatable, racing and somersaulting in the deep end. All pupils were a credit to the school with their manners and good behaviour.
Then back to Melrose for fish suppers outside in the Staff Garden in the evening sun :-)
Tennis matches, football, a danceathon and garden gymnastics after tea and then cooling off with choc ices. Tonight really summed up boarding life at St. Mary's!
