The students were awake at 6.45am to get packed and ready for a hearty breakfast, followed by another day of hard work in the fields. 

In just a day and a half's work, Service Group 3 have dug out two large trenches, and have shifted compost to in excess of 50 tyres. Each tyre will hold a lime tree - a valuable resource for the long term future of the small community here. The trenches will hold the pipes of the irrigation system to ensure the trees are well watered. 

All the students have been working extremely hard in hot conditions, and have been very sensible with taking on water and applying sunscreen. The winners of yesterday's Outstanding Attitude Award were Narayani and Hugh, who both worked tirelessly and enthusiastically all day. Mr Tuckley and Mr O'Shea have been in awe of all the students' commitment - they have been a credit to DCIS.
