Week ending 22nd June 

Monday 18th June
No boarders as they were all at camp :-)

Tuesday 19th June
With the seniors away at camp, Form 2 and 3's had the opportunity to enjoy a boarding taster night. After pizza and salad for tea, everyone gathered under the big tree to split into teams for a nature scavenger hunt... They searched high and low for seeds, leaves, treasure, pinecones, minibeasts and tested their artistic skills with drawings of flora and fauna. Then in their teams, everyone put together a performance to entertain the group and a professional panel of judges... It was a close competition with the joint winners being the fantastic gymnastics curated by form 2 girls and a debut dance routine by the form 5 regulars!

Have a look at the photo's -

Wednesday 20th June
Boarders returned from residential trips and matches at tea time and then enjoyed free time outside playing football and tennis. After showers there was the choice of watching a film in the Girls' House or Iran vs Spain in the Boys' House. Everyone enjoyed a well deserved rest after a busy and exciting start to the week!

Boarders soaked up the Festival atmosphere and took part in the 'odd object competition' along Melrose high street. Teams looked for unusual objects in 26 shop windows. They spotted an egg cup in the Opticians and a felt tip pen in a dress pocket in Bank House Living!
