Brightening the way

Year 6 pupils from the Old Hall School in Wellington spent five days in France, participating in a variety of activities including visiting the significant sites of WW1 on the Somme. And everyone could see them coming, thanks to their vividly coloured leavers hoodies donated by the Friends of the Old Hall School committee.
“The residential excursion to France is always a landmark date in the school calendar for Y6, who are busy storing up unforgettable memories from their final year,” said headmaster Martin Stott. “Such trips are not about school uniform but it was special to see them still step out as a school community. And the bright and positive colours definitely summed up the mood of a highly successful trip.”

More than 150 KS2 children took part in various summer residential trips, staying away from home from two to four nights in various locations.
