Two of our Grade 6 girls, Khanyisa Mtshali and Shaye Stockley, departed this afternoon for their exchange trip to St Piran’s Prep. School in Maidenhead, United Kingdom. Speaking to them yesterday, the girls said that they were feeling both nervous and excited for their trip; nervous because it will be their first time travelling without their parents, and excited because they know that they are going to have a fabulous time with their exchange partners, Milly and Izzy. Armed with motion sickness medication, some Uno cards and bags filled to capacity with warmer clothing, the girls are well prepared for their trip. We wish the girls, and Grade 1 teacher, Mrs Rowena Freese (who will be accompanying them) a wonderful trip and cannot wait to catch up with them in a couple of weeks when they return.
