On 28 April, the battle of GBA took place at Paintball Kuwait… Well. More of an end-of-term treat for Year 5 and Year 6, but a battle nonetheless that saw staff and pupils pit their wits against each other. Indeed, Miss Norma, Miss Lorraine, Miss Stephanie, Mr. Mark, Mr. Luke, Mr. Louis and Mr Henry were all very keen to […]
