Holland Trip 2019: Day 5: Movie World

Good morning Prestonpans – this is Valkenburg calling.

What a day we have had, the temperature has been off the scale!!!
A little delay to our start while Duncan, our driver, fixed the mechanism on the coach door then we were off to Movie World Germany.

The favourite attraction seemed to be the Star Trek™: Operation Enterprise.

After dinner it was karaoke in the Hotel and several of our young adventurers stepped up to the plate to give great performances. Notable performance awards go to Marc “Baby” Anderson and Thomas “Hotel California” Cowe.

Even more notable performances from PL staff.

Just before bed we shared cake to celebrate Liz Hewitt’s retirement (Her final night at Hotel Op De Boud after 4 years)

This will be our final post from Holland 2019 as we are on the Ferry on Wednesday evening.

The Staff Team would like to thank parents and carers for entrusting us with the care of these wonderful young people they have have been a credit to their families, our school and themselves. #ProudToBePL

Thank you to those who have taken the time to leave a comment.

See you Thursday

Gathering evidence for School Improvement



21 June 2019


Dear Parent/Carer


Gathering evidence for School Improvement

Each year we take a look at our work and gather opinions around how we might best improve the learning of young people.

This year we focus that feedback on two key areas of our School Improvement Plan for next session – family views on classroom learning and school feedback on student progress – and we would really like to hear the views of all of our parents and carers. Accordingly, we have put together a very short survey which you can find by following this link:

We simply want you to tell us how you think we are doing in these areas and/or how we might improve the learning experience in our school. There is also an opportunity to add any other comments that you might wish to make around school improvement.

I do hope you will give us your opinion – the survey takes only minutes to complete and we would really value your views.

Yours sincerely

Gavin Clark
