And we’re off…. 17

Slowly, but surly, throughout the morning pupils filtered into Brockington with bags in hand and parents not far behind. We all met up and prepared our luggage, excitedly talking about the trip ahead. We are now all sat down eating lunch after an emotional goodbye from our Year 9’s at the end of the school year and await our couch.

Johannesburg here we come!

    Didn’t get a chance to say bye with all the lunch stuff happening, ‘nor get a sweaty hug’!
    Have a fantastic trip and stay safe.

    Message for Karina from Mum & Dad – We arrived in Mumbai safely, sorry we could not say goodbye at Brockington when you left but sure you are having fun already. Just enjoy every moment and experience it! Lots of love xxx

    Hi all

    Sorry I didn’t get to say a proper goodbye and good luck to you all. I must admit to shedding a few tears as the reality set in that I won’t be with you. Hope you all have a fantastic, fulfilling and life changing time in Johannesburg.

    I keep saying ‘They’ll be on the plane now…they’ll be there now…I wonder what they are up to now…’

    Love to you all – you are an inspiration.

    Julie X (Mrs Webb to some of you!)

    BTW Ben, I’m sure you didn’t mean to call the team ‘surly’…sorry, I can’t help it, I have the ‘English teacher curse’!

    As instructed I shall try to keep our blogs embarrassment free!
    It was a real wrench to say goodbye yesterday – so thank you so much for sending Ish the facebook to let us know you have arrived well.
    Grandpa phoned last night to find out how it went and sends his love. I have encouraged him to blog so hope he does.
    Holly meowed outside your room at 5 am this morning wanting her breakfast – I had to show her that your room was empty, she has spent most of the day ‘yaking’ at birds eating our cherries and swishing her tail.
    It has been an outdoor day today, very hot. Ish and I have just got back in from a bell ringing meet at Cosby and Croft Churches.
    I hope your journey went well – without incident, and that you managed to get some sleep. Did you get asked to turn on your electrical equipment at the airport? Were your ears OK?
    Whats your first impression of South Africa?
    Love you so much and waiting to hear your blog news soon. Mum x
