Sobell so fun so fantastic day

You have to be at least 11 years old to use the gym at Sobell... and ONLY 11 years old to enjoy it quite so much.

The children of Tufnell Park should be sleeping soundly tonight. Today – all day – was the long-awaited whole school Fun Trip to the Sobell Centre, and what a riotous good time it was.

The Sobell Centre is cavernous, with facilities for an amazing variety of sporting activity tucked around many an unexpected corner. Equally amazing was to see Tufnell Park School fill it: familiar red t-shirts on every court, playing basketball, badminton, football (indoor and out), doing gymnastics, judo, trampolining, ice-skating, gym workouts and just plain jumping for joy. The lovely staff could not have been more helpful, relaxed and welcoming, and made absolutely sure that our kids had a brilliant time. We’re truly grateful to all of them for a wonderful day.

A big thank you is also due to our kitchen staff and their supervisor, Noel, who went more than the extra mile to provide packed lunches for a special Sobell indoor picnic. And let’s not forget the effort made by all our children at last year’s sponsored Fun Run, which funded the whole experience – including extra treats at lunchtime and lollies for the journey home.

More photos in due course: here’s just a taste of what went on.
