Day 11 – Our Final day

Day 11

So the last day and we had to wake up at 4.30am. Jack Oldfield and Holly from Swan were to be interviewed on The Morning Show which is National TV to an audience of 5 million. The rest of us were the studio audience and had a sneak peak at stardom. From there we had breakfast at the hotel and were recognised from the show, much to the students delight.

After breakfast we left the hotel for the rese of the day. Our first stop was Mambucal where we spent a couple of hours in the hot springs and swimming pool. We enjoyed a pizza lunch – as a taste of western food.

The afternoon was a time to be pampered. The boys could have massages, a shave and/or a haircut, whilst the girls had manicures, pedicures, hair treatments and/or facials. We all looked a million dollars.

After a bit of shopping at the mall, we attended a banquet served at the Mayor’s Council Chambers.

A band played a range of favourite songs so everyone enjoyed the dancing.

The mayor gave a farewell speech and blessed our journey home. He hopes that we will return to Bacolod next year.

We returned to the hotel for a debrief and then got packing. We leave at 3.30am tomorrow morning for a day in Manila.

This will be our last blog and we appreciate all the comments, they truly uplifted the spirits of the students during our trip.
