A relaxing Sunday ahead of the Hard work
A rare chance for a long lie, as we had breakfast between 0800 - 0900!! Then we spent two hours organising the equipment and clothing that we had brought over in the cases (with most pupils hitting the 30kg limit, although we had one pupil with 45kg!) The staff were busy trying to coordinate the provisions for all the schools, nurseries and charities we are working with. Then a relaxing walk along the beach to see the stalls and to let our group see their surroundings for the next ten days. Then we were back to the hotel for an hour and time to get ready for the beach party. There were about 200 of us on the beach and there were JGHS, ZHS, DHS pupils and staff, expupils from all the schools and a great afternoon was had by all, with over 250 pies being consumed and enjoyed along with other snacks. Then we were back to the hotel to get ready for dinner at Havana grill, based at the Suncoast casino resort. A very plush mall and hotel resort with cinemas, a variety of restaurants and shops. A grand night where the food was excellent and we sat with our family groups for the evening. Another great day and we are all ready to arrive at ZHS and DHS tomorrow for the development of the well established partnership.
