Boarders enjoy last weekend of term

The Saturday before the end of term, 16 Bedalians were warmly welcomed into the house of Nick Gleed, Director of Music. We enjoyed a delicious meal of homemade stew, quiche and an Eton mess mountain (an achievement for a total of 20 people!). Our stomachs full, we waddled into the minibus and went to the Havant bowling alleys. Eight games later we understood that Nick was not the child prodigy that he had previously claimed to be, nor was it impossible to miss with the barriers up! Afterwards, we had a quick go on the amusements machines, which both the students and staff seemed to be forming an addiction to. We all had a great time and, although losing countless coins on the amusement machines, headed back to Bedales having thoroughly enjoyed the last weekend of term.
