On Monday 3rd December pupils and staff from The Mount ventured into new Christmas party territory. Travelling by coach, no less than 60 of us took over the Honeymoon Garden Chinese restaurant in Paddock Wood. The meal was an “eat all you like” buffet with a huge number of dishes including crispy duck, starters, mains and ice cream for dessert.
Inevitably some pupils took “eat all you like” for “eat all you can”! Entertainment was provided by ourselves, with a karaoke set installed in the restaurant for the very first time and Mount pupils (and staff!) belting out their favourites, notably including many Queen classics. A great time was had by all, with prizes awarded for best Christmas attire and best karaoke performance. Special thanks to The Mount staff, who happily gave up their evening for a night that would have challenged the eardrums of many!
