As we draw closer and closer to the summer holidays, we can’t help but think back to last year and all the fun we had. Inspire Summer 2017 was awesome; we certainly had a blast, hope you did too! We also have a sneaky suspicion that Inspire Summer 2018 is going to be just as awesome, if not even better!
Beforehand though, let’s take a look back at some of the highlights…
First of all, we’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our staff that made Inspire incredible last year. You were a fantastic team – talented, enthusiastic and with such unwavering positivity. We look forward to working with some of you again this year, as well as welcoming new faces to the Inspire crew. Let’s see if we can finally win the Tug O’ War this year, c’mon Inspire Team!
One of our favourite trips last year has to be our London tourist trip. The weather was stunning! For those that went on the London Eye, the views were breathtaking. For those of us that dared to venture into the London Dungeons, it was an experience we shall never forget! As we walked through the sunny green parks of London, had ice-creams, and shopped along Oxford Street, we couldn’t have asked for much more.
Casino Night is always a favourite night each year. Last year, the atmosphere was electric! Everyone was dressed up very sophisticatedly (imagine 007 and Bond Girls), immersed themselves in the games on offer, drank mocktails, and excitedly bid for prizes with their Inspire money. Watching the sunset from the Pavillion, looking out across Bradfield College is a very special sight.
Finally, the staff play has to be one of the highlights! In secret, students wrote and rehearsed a mock-Morning Meeting performance for the staff. Needless to say, it was hilarious! Particularly, because we sneakily borrowed items from staff wardrobes to make the students look more like them! Shh!
Who knows what memories we will be making this year. We hope you can join us for another awesome year at Inspire.
