Millie and Emma here!
It's Friday and the last day of being in Spurgeon's Academy. Wow! What a week! I think that everyone has been on a rollercoaster of emotions but over everything there have been lots of smiles!
Today's lessons started off well, although there was a sad feeling of the last day in the air. P1 had their Olympics opening ceremony, P2 had fun with post-it notes and P4 wrote letters and drew pictures of their teachers for the week before having lots of fun with paper aeroplanes. After a crazy assembly by Simon and a lot of pictures taken and shirts signed we went on to our morning activities
P1 did parachute, P2 die painting, P3 did games, P4 played football, P5 played frisbee and other games, P6 did facepainting and bingo! All were crazy and manic just as the rest of the week had been, but the kids loved it!
After our final lunch at Kenyanitos, the school held a celebratory assembly for us. We had singing, poems, dancing and speeches. All of it was amazing and many of the team had tears in their eyes as teacher Collins and Kenyanito gave final speeches. Then the goodbyes began.
All of us were flooded with hugs and God blesses, and a lot of 'please come back's. Many of us found it difficult to respond to this and many responded with tears. Lots and lots of tears. However, there were still some smiles and there is always the memory of what, as a team, we have achieved.
Many friends have been made and many lessons learnt by heart, not just by the children of Spurgeons. I think we can say on behalf of all the team what a challenging and emotional week it has been, but it was amazing. All the children of Spurgeons will forever be in our hearts.
Now for the meal with the teachers and a bit of dancing!
