The Christmas Ball

On Friday night the boarders had a wonderful time at the Christmas Ball in the stately Dining Hall which looked splendid with Christmas decorations. A music request list from the boarders ensured that there was plenty of dancing and boogieing and it was great to see all boarders join in. The snow machine provided a warmer version of events that were occurring outside – it was lucky the boarders did not have to travel far to the party! Everyone made a huge effort to dress up smartly in their dresses and gowns and suits and all looked very elegant. Thanks also to Santa Clause for making an appearance and for making a very good attempt to look like Hoffman – an uncanny resemblance! Pizza kept the dancing going until late into the evening whilst the snow kept falling outside.

A Christmas Bake-Off

Years 7 & 8 boarders began the Christmas festivities with a Bake Off competition last Saturday. They worked together in teams and made traditional German biscuits under the guidance of MrsThyssen and Mrs Ward. Our amateur bakers made some fantastic biscuits with great designs and they even tasted good! Mr & Mrs French and Kaden came over were the judges and were so impressed with the end results. Mr French said “Great taste of ginger, lovely crunch and also beautiful designs”.

Congratulations to the winning team: Alejandra, Krishma, Jennifer and Bruno.
