The morning proceeded as normal. After a satisfying breakfast, we went for our practice at St Thomas', the vicar came and talked to us, and ate his own home-made 'dog food', (which consisted of fruit, chocolate and jelly) as well as offering it to some of the boys! We visited Pickwicks and got sweets for the boat journey the next day. The practice went very well and we returned to the hotel to have our lunch.
The Head Choristers, Team Leaders and some other senior boys went to the Venture Centre in the afternoon whilst the other boys went to the boating lake. At the Venture Centre, we did archery, shooting and the assault course; we all got muddy and wet! The other boys went on pedalos in Mooragh Park and also went to the beach where they had a game of football.
When everyone got back to the hotel, we started packing our suitcases, then had our tea before setting off to St Thomas 's again for our final service. Max C sung an extremely good solo, and we presented the church with a gift from all the boys.
We then had supper before finishing our packing and going to bed.
It has to be said that this has been a brilliant week, all the boys have thoroughly enjoyed it, this has been most evident in the extremely high standard of singing, and everyone is already excited about returning next year. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the staff for all their work throughout the week and for making this trip possible and to everyone at Isle of Man for extending such a warm welcome.
