On Friday 22 April night, the younger students played a massive game of cards in the joint common room.
On Saturday, some of the students helped Miss Wallace and Miss Ashford make ‘ANZAC’ biscuits. Miss Ashford provided the following explanation of what these are:
‘Aussies and New Zealanders make ANZAC biscuits every year to commemorate ANZAC DAY (Australia and New Zealand Army Corps) on the 25th of April. This day marks the battle of Gallipoli in the First World War, where many ANZAC’s fought and lost their lives. ANZAC biscuits were commonly made at home in Australia to raise funds for the war effort, and their simple ingredients of oats, flour, coconut, golden syrup, butter and bicarb soda resemble the simplicity of the food and resources of the ANZACs. Together with our boarders we made a batch to share in celebration on ANZAC day this Monday.’
And finally on Sunday the boarders went climbing at Ready2climb where many faced their fears – it was great to see their confidence grow over the session.
