Saturday 2nd June

After breakfast the bus picked us up to take us to the beach to catch the speed boat accross to "Coral Island". The first speedboat they brought was too small so they contacted someone else to bring the larger boat (which we had ordered in the first place) and we all clambered aboard, and set off at high speed to the island. We had ordered deckchairs so had a shady place to sit. The pupils all had a great time in the sea but the time was out so it was rather shallow. It gave us a relaxing time ready for a flight home. We returned at 4 p.m. and had time for a shower before church at 6 p.m., then supper at 7 p.m. and the coach to the airport came at 8 p.m.

The flights home were good, we started to get used to being fed 2 breakfasts and other meals at strange times of the day and night, also we had plenty of waiting around in Bangkok and Dubai, but arrived in Birmingham only 30 minutes late at 12.30. We were probably a stange sight, some in coolie hats and a stange assortment of exotic clothes! The families were all waiting for us and were thrilled to see everyone looking bronzed and well, if a little tired.
