Camp HCH 2019

Over 130 pupils from years 5 to 13 and 40 staff took part in the annual Camp HCH in the school grounds on Friday. At the end of the school day the pupils made their way to the sports field to pitch their tents and say goodbye to their parents before the evening’s festivities started. As the BBQ was lit, the students took part in ‘Zen in the Den’ activities, making their own dreamcatchers and learning how to craft their own bows and arrows out of twigs from the school grounds. As the sun began to set on the campsite, the pupils played French cricket and ultimate frisbee tournaments while the catering team and teachers began to prepare the food for dinner. After dinner, the bonfires were lit and the pupils gathered to perform live music for one another and dance. The evening drew to a close with marshmallows toasting over the bonfires and stories before bedtime. On Saturday morning the campsite was cleared while the children drank hot chocolate and ate croissants, chatting about the evening before and the many happy memories they have made.
