Lake District Summer Holiday a huge success!

The Lake District Summer Holiday proved a huge success, with more students than ever deciding to come.

Activities included football, football, more football, some hiking, some canooing, and messing about in the water, and loads of other stuff.

For some children, it was their first time away from home without their families, but you wouldn’t have known it from the way everyone enjoyed themselves.

Sensei Steve needed to sleep for a week afterwards though.
