Kids Out June 2016
Annual Kids out day taking youngsters from Highfield school to Wicksteed Park
KIDS OUT 2016
On 9 June the Rotary Club of Ely, with support from the Rotary Clubs of Soham and Littleport, took 64 children from Highfields School and 30 helpers and assistants to Wicksteed Park. Three buses from Grey's of Ely, plus the school's own minibus, took the excited children on a very sunny day to the Park. They were supplied with sandwiches, crisps, fruit, chocolate and a drink by the Rotary Club before they went off to enjoy the rides. Nearly all of the children went on the train ride. Several went on the lighthouse which takes you up a large pole to the sky and drops you down to the ground. You would want to do that before you had your food! Several went on the Carousel, the Ladybird Coaster, the Wicksteed Cars or the Paratrooper. Some of the more daring children went on the racing cars. In all, there were over 25 different rides the children could go on and when they got back to school, at the end of the day, they were all very tired but still excited.
