The annual trip to the Clothes Show at the NEC in Birmingham took place on the 9th and 10th of December 2012. We departed school Sunday morning at 9.30am and made a stop at Cadbury’s world to have a tour of the attraction and stock up on chocolate, before making our way to our hotel. After showering and getting changed we headed to Solihull and the Wok Hall Chinese buffet restaurant where we had a fantastic meal. After we had eaten Mrs Cooper and Mrs Irvine started off the Karaoke in great style, great fun was had by all.
Next morning we were up early and on the coach for 8.45am. The journey to the NEC only took 5 minutes and ours was the first coach to arrive. Once inside the venue we split into small groups to look round the stands and get the bargains before meeting up at 11.30 to go into the big fashion show in the arena and to be entertained by JLS.
This year’s fashion show took on the theme of the fashion shoot and we experienced an energetic, colourful and thoroughly enjoyable show. All the students really enjoyed themselves shouting, screaming and on occasion wolf whistling at the models. The trip was once again a complete success and everyone had a fantastic time. We climbed back onto our coach at about 4.00pm loaded down with multi coloured shopping bags stuffed with all our new purchases.
