St Mary's School

"The children are at the heart of everything we do".

This week, both year 3 classes have undertaken a big walk up to the RNLI statue of Sir William Hillary at Douglas Head.

Even though the weather was quite hot, we had a great day! We had a nice slow walk down to the Villa Marina where we had a juice and toilet break! We then continued along the prom to the sunken gardens where we drew sketches and had our snacks! We then walked up past the Douglas RNLI station, where we saw the Ramsey Lifeboat in the water!! We had another quick toilet break before walking up to Douglas Head.

We were kindly met by Siobhan Molloy who provided us with Ice cold bottles of water and fruit shoots! We are very grateful to the Friends of St Marys for providing us with these!

We had a nice lunch break before being met by Mary Corran. who is now the Deputy Operations Manager. She gave us a great talk on the RNLI and the roles of the different lifeboat stations on the Island. She even told us how they once saved a cow! A big thank you to Mary for coming to see us.

After this we started our walk back! It was much cloudier on our walk back which gave us a nice break from the sun! We also got to play in the park!

All in all, we had a great day!
