THREE full coaches left the John Masefield High School on Wednesday, June 25, as Year Seven students travelled to London's Lyceum Theatre, to see The Lion King.

The group left the school at 10am, and it wasn't until twelve hours later when the coaches pulled the car park, where scores of parents were waiting, in the fading light, to pick up their children.

The outing, which included on-route stops at fast-food restaurants, proved to be very popular with the 11 and 12 year olds.
