Portobello Mon Amour

About this memory

Every year I take the Leavers on a trip to Portobello. It was a family trip for us in the 1980s and the kids love it just as much 30 years later. Portobello is just fantastic.
We wear Leavers’ hoodies, paddle, I run a scavenger hunt, we play rounders and eat ice cream. We have an old-fashioned seaside day and return to school smelling of the sea and fresh air. It makes unforgettable memories and they always say it was their best ever school trip.
