Students spent a day off the usual timetable to indulge in topics outside of the traditional curriculum. The day is held each year at Forest Hall to broaden students’ horizons and give them opportunities to indulge in a theme for longer than lessons allow. https://t.co/ytqVNFFjbL https://t.co/ubgJV1i8I0
