Prep Boarding - Highland Games and Cake Decorating

The Prep boarders had a great first weekend back in house. On Saturday afternoon they had the chance to enjoy a run around on the William House Astro, as well as taking part in a cake decorating session. They were delighted with their beautifully and, in some cases, very elaborately decorated cakes, which were saved for Saturday night tuck.

On Sunday afternoon Arran and Iona Houses joined together for their version of Highland Games. They were split up into four clans - Campbell, Hunter, MacDonald and Stewart, and the first challenge was to come up with a clan dance or chant. The following rounds consisted of a stretcher race and a giant sack race and they finished off with attempts at tossing the caber. Points were awarded for each round and it was a very close-run contest in the end with two clans coming out on top to win the all-important chocolate prize!

The afternoon was finished off perfectly with a game of Arran versus Iona dodgeball.
