Students Enjoy Flying Kites on Bardsea Beach

12 September 2019

On Saturday 7 September, a group of Year 7, 8 and 9 students went to Bardsea to fly kites.

Unlike previous trips to the seaside, the weather was fantastic and there was only the merest suggestion of a breeze. The group soon decided to make the best of this situation and fortified themselves with ice creams from Roy’s Ices. With over 40 different flavours of ice cream, this took longer to achieve than anticipated! Once the ice creams had been enjoyed, the group set off to explore the coastal walk. Upon returning to the bus, it was clear that there was now a steady offshore breeze. Everyone quickly assembled the kites; butterflies and stunt kites, and soon the sky was full of kites with everyone taking  turns to fly them.

The group really enjoyed the chance to fly kites and were reluctant to leave the beach. Following an energetic and acrobatic return to the car park, via the marsh, a contented group were ready to return to Windermere School.
