Bright and early on May 20, 2015, the Juniors and Seniors hauled in their packs stuffed with towels, bathing suits, and some with fishing gear in preparation for the annual Junior-Senior Outing. The bell went at eight and fifteen minutes later the two classes loaded up the bus and headed for the Gifford’s lake house in Winchindon, MA.
After a thirty to forty-five minute ride, the bus unloaded and everyone jumped right into the fun. Due to the weather, however, many stayed inside an played Uno to avoid the chilling wind. The students outside enjoyed s’mores over a bonfire, rides on small boats, wake-boarding, freezing cold water balloon fights, and even tubing. The boys really enjoyed the water balloon fight; especially when they made teams and ambushed each other, sometimes hitting innocent bystanders in the crossfire. For lunch the students enjoyed haystacks prepared by the Junior class.
“Everyone who went had a really great time,” Josue Feliciano, a Junior at SLA stated when asked about the outing.
“No one got hurt,” Josh Martin reassures those who may have been interned by the water balloon fights.
Overall, the trip was very enjoyable (even though the weather could have been the smallest bit better for swimming). We’d love to hear about a day trip of yours, so share in the comments below!
