South Coast Day 3 – Jubilee

We started off the day with our last breakfast in the ministry and then headed straight to the local elementary school on Boracay. We split into two groups and began our invigorating day of tutoring and construction. The tutoring consisted of teaching years 1-3 simple math equations, memory games and reading the children’s favourite books in the schools library. The other half of the group rendered, plastered and painted the new floor (level 3) of the school, so when we all get our atar scores back, at least we will all be able to take up plastering as a career if it goes badly.

We then headed over to a small village 30 minutes away and made balloon animals and pipe-cleaner jewelry for the kids. We then began distributing the food and vitamins before teaching the kids how to skip with a super large rope. After some hesitation, all of the kids were joining in and having fun with the whole team. Dani and Ralph became fully qualified doctors as they gave medical help to the locals in the village. Absolute champions.
Once the kids came out of their shells, they were very reluctant to us leaving. After many hugs and sad goodbyes, we had to leave 😦

When we got home we began the most heated game of Presidents and Scumbags with 2 decks of cards where we quickly discovered how useless Ralph is with dealing and shuffling, but we also discovered he has the worlds best German accent (although this didnt help with his card skills unfortunately).

Also turns out when Luke put on make up, he became the prettiest girl in the team.

And then i began writing this blog. Pretty good i reckon.

PS- dani says “Love you Big Craigo”

and we’re also extremely salty about the level of replies and comments we’ve had so far….do you even still care about us? come on guys lift your game. – “drops mic”
