Enrichment Week: Scenic Cyprus
Published on 19/07/18
Pupils in Years 7-9 and 4 members of staff departed from Gatwick and travelled to Cyprus during Enrichment Week for four nights. The group arrived at the hotel on the seafront and were treated to beautiful sun-soaked weather for the duration of the trip. The fun began on the Tuesday with a beach volleyball tournament followed by an afternoon trip to the old town of Limassol.
The following day was spent seeing some of the cultural highlights of the area, including the breath-taking ancient and intricate mosaics in the house of Dionysos, as well as the ruins of Curium. Pupils also visited Aphrodite’s Rock and enjoyed the rugged coastline and spectacular views overlooking the Bay of Akrotiri. The cultural exposure culminated in ‘Cyprus Night’: a meal of local and international dishes accompanied by Cypriot music and dancing. The festivities ended with a giant conga line which snaked around the restaurant’s tables while some pupils were called up to show off their best dance moves.
The penultimate day was, for many, the highlight as it was spent at the waterpark, taking on the most adventurous of rides. The day ended with a quiz and England’s defeat to Belgium in the World Cup. The final day included some time at the pool and a trip to Limassol Marina before returning home.
The pupils should be commended for their outstanding conduct and behaviour throughout the entirety of the week.
