Our final day in Sydney has been just as wonderful and full of adventure as any other we’ve had here in Australia! We started the day with brekky at the hostel, then headed out the door to our bridge climb just a few minutes away on foot! We couldn’t have asked for a better location to stay so close to all the attractions. The students took on the challenge with gusto and excitement. Encouraged by all the previous accomplishments and efforts along the way these past couple of weeks, every single student got up and out there to reach the full summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The spectacular views were well worth the climb but even more so, the knowledge that we can conquer anything we set our minds too! Directly after the climb, we headed out to the wharf to catch a short ferry to Manly beach for the surf lessons. We were pleased to see many of our kiddos be quite successful on a surf board. And of course we had our pro photographer, Fred, catch some action shots of the students catching some waves!
We finished up our final evening with an amazing meal at Papi Chulas followed by a meaningful debriefing back at the hostel. All in all, it has been a wonderful trip and we are certain to be changed for the better for all the amazing experiences along the way. What a fantastic group of kids! We teachers couldn’t be more proud!
