Final day in Valkenburg!

The heat didn’t let up in Valkenburg today, and with temperatures reaching 27’, the children enjoyed the breath-taking views from the chairlift, followed by the thrill of the roller coaster ride on the toboggan run at ‘A Gogo’. Each child was able to choose his/her own speed with the brake, and slide down the mountain, where they then got the draglift back up to the starting point again. Once everyone had a turn, it was back down the mountain once more on the chairlift, to the town for some last minute shopping and much needed ice cream!

After lunch it was off to Kinderstad Heerlen for yet more adrenalin inducing action! Kinderstad, I am told, is like Indianaland times 10 – with dodgems, ball pits, rollercoasters, trampolines, etc. etc.

With an enormous appetite worked up, it was back to the hotel for tea, diary updates, and a final pack, before hitting the silent dance floor!!! With gifts of sunglasses and caps from the very generous Rico, the tireless children grooved to the silent beat! I will let them tell you more about that!!! The finale in the evening was a Congo, led by Rico, outside on the street! Sounds like yet another amazing day and a great end to a very successful trip!

Congratulations to Ms Seaton, Mr. Bradley, Mrs. Drysdale, Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Tyrie for making Valkenburg 2016 such an amazing experience for the P.7 children. And well done children for your fantastic behaviour!
