Students Reap The Reward Of Prizegiving At Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Student newsletter writer Abigail Yan reports on the annual Blackpool Pleasure Beach Prizegiving rewards trip...

This trip was arranged for students that had been to prizegiving- this is where students get the chance to celebrate their efforts in the academic year with family and friends.

An astonishing 109 students went on the trip and we were free to explore the theme park with our friends. My personal favourite rides were Icon, The Big One and Valhalla! The day was jam-packed with fun-filled rides, laughs and a lot of screaming, as Miss Foster and Miss Sterling can tell you... especially on The Big One!

When we first got to the theme park, I was terrified of going on the rollercoasters, but by the end of the day I loved them. I thought of it like getting over my worst nightmares! I think going on rollercoasters has given me a big confidence boost to do anything, because if I can go on The Big One (which is over 200 feet tall), I can accomplish anything!

By the end of the day I had been on; Valhalla(I got drenched but it was awesome), Icon 6 times, The Big One twice, Revolution, The Big Dipper and many, many more. I loved going to Blackpool Pleasure Beach with school as it gave me a chance to overcome fears and give me more confident!

This was a wonderful opportunity and you should aim to go to prize giving next year and you might be one of the lucky ones going to Blackpool Pleasure Beach!!
