Breaking the Ice

The only way Gosford Hill’s Sixth Form knows how
to make sure everyone is fully acquainted with one
another. Placing two bouncy castles, setting an array
of treats and drinks, blasting music and encouraging
everyone to dress up, yes, welcome to the 2017 ice
This year’s theme was especially creative, as students
were dressing up as the first letter of their name (e.g.
Ellie could be Elsa from Frozen). The results were
very amusing. This year we had two Jesus’, a T-rex
(thankfully a mini replica), Ali G and many more
entertaining costumes.

The night consisted of wild dancing and competitive
jumping on the bouncy castles while constantly
toppling over each other. Some students could say
the large sumo wrestling costumes were one of many
highlights (let us not forget the special sumo battle
between Head of Sixth Form Mr Williams and Year
12’s very own Jonah Clarke).

The ‘dance off’ between the two years was definitely
a sight to see, both very… unique. Now although
we are 17 and 18 years old, songs such as ‘Cha Cha
Slide’ by DJ Casper and ‘Macarena’ by Los del Rio
were still significant as all the students got involved -
and the teachers weren’t shy about it either.
The atmosphere was positive and many memories
were made that night. We would all like to thank
every individual that helped organise the event, the
whole ice breaker was very well put together, and it
certainly fulfilled its purpose. We all broke the ice.
