Southern Hills Crew Day 4: Reboot Day

This morning we started our day off with french toast and bacon and breakfast. We then took the morning ferry to the Ati school where they held their version of a sport carnival. There we all joined in; teaching them Australian netball, then continuing by playing basketball and volleyball. Throughout the day Trevin, Jamie and Mr. Puzey stayed to help put together window frames. We also had leaders walking around with a camera taking both digital and Polaroid pictures for the children and students as keepsakes.  The children really enjoyed the Polaroid pictures and were eager to show them to everyone.


After having a rewarding but exhausting experience at the Ati school, we caught the ferry back to Boracay. We then walked from the port to the Global School. Here we had a delicious lunch consisting of chicken and rice. Then we continued the work from the day before, painting the stage wall, pillars, rock wall, garden edges and curbing. We also continued on with our work of varnishing the bamboo blinds and staining some wooden beams and staircases.  We were joined by eager school workers who helped a lot and were willing to go the extra mile to give us equipment and a helping hand whenever we needed.

After painting we drove back to the villa where we quickly got changed and ready for our  first and much anticipated swim on the Island. The water was beautiful, crystal clear and refreshing. Using the GoPro we took heaps of funny photos and videos as a group. Mr Beacham, Jacob and Yerby boys carried on tradition with an on-the shoulder war. Sadly after 45 minutes of a great swim we had to get out, get changed and ready for dinner.


At dinner we were all surprised with burgers and burritos. It was another delicious meal. After dinner the boys and girls were split up and surprised with a hair treatment for the boys and massages for the girls. After an hour or so the boys joined the massage parlour and the girls went back to the villa for debrief and the making of a bible story to present to the Arti children at the church service tomorrow.

Trevin’s Twin 🙂


When the boy’s got their hair done, Trevin and Jaime adorned their Mullets with blonde tips.

    It all looks wonderful, and while while you are being a blessing you’re being blessed. Awesome.

    Thanks Astrid and Lorien; so great to hear from you both.

    Astrid, just because the place is so much quieter without you, we wouldn’t go so far as to say we’re having a great time without you. Especially sooky-psycho Ninja. She’s taken to sleeping in Dad’s drawer’s since you’ve been gone.

    Much love and prayers xxx
