The day started with yet another spell of rain reflecting the groups tired nature. However after a competitive but fun game of 'riff off' and 'ninja', we headed to our task of painting the classrooms and varnishing desks. It is great to see all our work coming together and there is only half a day of work left before the safari.
After lunch, the group enjoyed some much needed down time. We soon met Gem, the programme manager of Joshua, who spoke to us about where the money raised has gone (we raised just over £6000!). We also discussed cultural problems which are being tackled, which really opened our eyes to how lucky we are back in England. It is also important to note Miss Barker's impressive two 'murders' in one day (killing Joe and Ellie)*.
After playing the usual games of Bananagrams and cards, we enjoyed a dinner of rice and veg cooked by Erin, Ellie, and Amy. We are now learning the 'cup song' from Pitch Perfect for the leaving ceremony tomorrow before our safari.
Wish us luck! Let's hope it goes better than our hymn!

*The game is now getting heated, with the two final killers being Miss Barker and Dom!
