A traditional Cambridge welcome for our boarders

A traditional Cambridge welcome for our boarders

As the 2017/2018 academic year begins we welcome new and returning boarders to St Mary’s School, Cambridge. To welcome the girls back, our housemistresses took them for a punt along the River Cam – an enjoyable and quintessentially ‘Cambridge’ activity.

On Sunday 10 September, boarders from Year 7 to Upper Sixth enjoyed a 45-minute cruise down the river, past the many historically significant University of Cambridge colleges. The girls all had a relaxing journey, being entertained by the often amusing stories told by the punter. This is always such a popular part of the beginning of the year and much fun was had by all.
