15th May 2019

On Monday the team all spent the day in Water World in Ayia Napa (check out the website for all the water slides/rides!). Not too many photos were taken as most staff were involved in the activites and cameras were not an option! It was a very hot day, but we all managed pretty well with interludes of juice, water, ice-cream and loads of sunblock!

It now seems like both our schools are one...they all get on so well together and are helping and supporting each other at all times and having SO ....MUCH....FUN!

Yesterday, we had a "down day" by our pools. We just all needed a day to recharge our batteries - ready for our 4-hour boat trip today on the Black Pearl pirate ship! We met with Captain Jack Sparrow & his team of pirates. All the pupils took the pirate oath, completed some pirate training and are now bona fide "sprog" pirates!

They participated in an onboard treasure hunt, made pirate flags and were entertained by the team of pirates on board. Thankfully nobody had to walk the plank!

We had an amazing 20 swim in the ocean off the ship. All the students wore life jackets and were accompanied by our staff. The water was azure blue and crystal was beautiful.

Tomorrow we leave our hotel at 7am (!) for a day trip to the RAF base....the excitement conitnues....
