On Monday the 9th of June, 36 Forrester girls travelled to London for a 3 day Dance Trip. We visited Pineapple Dance Studios for a Hip Hop dance session with a professional dancer, went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the West End, went on the London Eye and saw Prince William driving into Buckingham Palace. We also visited the Olympic Park and did a lot of shopping. It was a fantastic trip and all girls were exceptional in every way, a credit to Forrester High School. Fantastic three days had by staff and pupils alike!!
