Students in Year 13 at The Weald School said “goodbye” to staff and students last week on their official final day at the school.
Although students are in the midst of their A2 exams, the school has traditionally celebrated this important day with a number of events.
In previous years the final part of the day has included an inter-tutor group “Marine Challenge”.
This has effectively been a giant water fight between opposing teams, bravely judged by volunteer staff.
With a hosepipe ban in place this year such an event was not possible and students hired in a giant inflatable human table football.
The “footballers” were the students who held on to bars going across the inflatable pitch.
Great fun was had by all.
Head of Sixth form Tom Backshall commented: “Sixth Formers were initially quite concerned when we told them we wouldn’t be able to have the Marine Challenge, but as it’s turned out the Human Table Football was a huge success and we may well keep it for future years.”
The range of teams competing was impressive and included Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, an Avatar team (in blue!) a Power Rangers team and a Pirate team.
Staff were keen to play the winning students, but were not able to get onto the pitch as the students were having too much fun.
Staff wished the students all the best in their forthcoming exams.
