#iloveboarding

In conjunction with the Boarding Schools Association campaign #iloveboarding, we asked our boarders to enter a photo competition to tell us why they love boarding at the College. Many congratulations to Naomi & Prettny for winning with their lovely photo from Hatfield Forest and to Paco whose winning entry shows a birthday celebration.

Paul loves boarding because...

Grimwade boarder Paul loves boarding because "it gives us time to think when things are hard and if we can't figure out what to do, our friends can always give us a leg up to reach that next level we need to get to. If I gave someone help, they surely would help me too! Plus, I love the comedy it brings!"

Titus loves boarding because...

Titus thinks boarding is great because "it gives me an opportunity to meet new people (because I am new) explore different places and have fun. I think living with other people is really fun because you make really good life long friends. When we go places we get to do enjoyable things. In the house it is also fun because I love playing table tennis but it is challenging sometimes. And that's why I love boarding."

Young House boarders love boarding because....

Young House overseas boarders celebrated the Chinese Mid Autumn Festival of the Moon in September.  The pupils enjoyed 'moon cake', ice creams, and lit the traditional lanterns.

Yuki loves boarding because...

Young House boarder Yuki says that "the reason why I love boarding is because you get to know everyone from different years and even different countries. The main skill that I've learnt over these 4 years from this college is how to get along well with everyone in the college. We are one community, we help and encourage each other if we have any problems. I'm glad I joined as a full boarder."
