S1 and S2 had a fantastic time in London last weekend. The boys were asked to write an account of the trip for homework. Here is one pupils account of the trip: "On Sunday the 11th of June Birkdale school were heading to London. After a long time of hugs and waves goodbye the coach of 11 and 12 year olds was off. Shortly after we were put into travel groups. Mr Low, Mrs Birtles, Mrs Stolz and Mr Pietrck. I can’t lie that a few people were scared to be with Mr Pietrek but he turned out to be so nice...
In early June, Prep 3 embarked on their now annual visit to the Lake District. Whilst the weather forecast for the week was not good at all, as always this trip was eagerly anticipated by Prep 3 pupils and staff. Indeed, for many of the boys this would be their first residential trip away from their parents and families!
The Prep School boys enjoyed two Sports Day in perfect sunny conditions last week. We were delighted to see so many parents attending and cheering the boys on. Prep took part in eight Athletics events, competing in Houses and as individuals, with a possible 100 points available for each event. After two hours of grit and determination, it was Roberts House who would defend their title from Osborn, Westbury and Martin.
On Saturday 17 June the Friends of Birkdale school (FoBs) hosted their annual Ball at Baldwins Omega. Over 150 guests were welcomed to the ball by the school's acclaimed jazz band Octopus. This year there was a very special welcome as Theo the Bear, the Children's Hospital Charity mascot, was on hand to also shake hands with all guests as they arrived for this prestigious event.
On Sunday 21 May the P4 trip departed for their base at Chateau Ebblingham. Situated just a short distance from the town of St. Omar, the Chateau is an ideal base for exploring the region and experiencing the history, culture and language of France. As well as for having great fun!
