A Glorious Have a Go Day Weekend

In glorious spring weather, this year’s Have a Go Day brought 500 visitors to the School, hosted by more than 200 pupils, to take part in a huge variety of activities during the weekend of 22 and 23 April.

They enjoyed various activities including swimming, badminton, basketball, archery, football, indoor rowing, crazy golf, face painting, boccia, yoga, music and art activities, as well as the chance to take traction engine rides around the School’s grounds.

HAGD offers an encouraging environment in which visitors with special needs and their families can try their hand at new sports and activities. Those who had been before made a bee-line for their favourite sport as soon as they arrived. Others liked to try their hand at a varied number of activities such as archery, yoga cricket and with football, always being a popular choice.

To cap it off, the School’s photographers and theatre wardrobe team set up a photo booth for visitors to take away a souvenir as a memory of their day.
