On Saturday 28th September 45 students visited the school’s adopted rhino – amongst other animals –at the Cotswold Wildlife Park, Burford. The visit was the culmination of Mrs Hunt’s “Rhino Week” at school, involving students fundraising for the rhino by putting loose change into a rhino shape, a ‘name the rhino’ competition to win a cuddly rhino and selling animal key rings and snap bands. Students also bought and hungrily devoured a large amount of homemade rhino shaped cookies!
The day was bright and sunny and students enjoyed a great day around the Park. It was especially pleasing to see so many of our new Year 7 students taking part in their first school trip!
Thanks to Mrs Hunt and all the other members of staff who gave up their Saturday to enable the trip to go ahead.
