St Issy 2017 Group 1 Day 2

St Issy 2017 Group 1 Day 2

St Issy 2017 27 September 2017

Day 2 – The first full day in Cornwall, the weather was still kind and as the day went on the temperature increased. The activities of the day consisted of the coastal path walk and the surfing. The walk of over 3 miles took in some breath taking views, from the land formation of which the geographers were very keen to point out, to the dolphins in the bay. The path was hard going at times but students remained in high spirits at we navigated the rocky pathway. It was busy down on the beach today and students were keen to get into the water. There were some comedy moments when students couldn’t quite find the best way to carry a surf board without planting in the sand. After a detailed demonstration students were let loose in the water. Mr McCafferty entered the water in very much the Baywatch style but quickly demonstrated enthusiasm outweighed the talent. The children loved it and I will say that this year we had a number of students who were able to stand up albeit not for very long. The day was not without incident, 3 students encountered a fish that doesn’t like being stood on and we promptly received medical attention. Although the boys were not in too much pain once we had an ice cream to take our mind off it. After 10 minutes they were raring to go back into the water. Overall a good day, and what really topped the day off was returning to the Manor House for Curry and sponge pudding with custard for dessert.
