Fun in the Bedales snow

Students across the three schools enjoyed various activities in the snow last week. Sledging proved popular with boarders over the weekend with teachers joining in too. Sixth formers took part in a snowman building competition followed by hot chocolate. A big thank you to the Facilities Department kept the three schools moving throughout the snowy weather by using snow ploughs, salt spreaders and  good honest shovelling to keep the roads and paths free of snow and ice, and most importantly safe for the community. Assistance was also been given to our local Almshouses, the main roads between the schools, Steep parish church and to staff who have been stuck in the snow in their cars. One of Bedales snow ploughs was pictured on The Daily Mail website the Friday before last, clearing Bell Hill. View photo (3/4 way down the page). View photos.
