An Phu Primary Year 4 Trip to Long Hai

30 March 2015

It was a scorching-hot day when over 100 children made the journey to Long Hai and whilst many students were thirsting for adventure, other children were somewhat more apprehensive. Many questions were being asked: Were they prepared for this expedition? Would they be able to pack their own bags? Could they survive for three whole days?

On arrival at the hotel, and after a quick tidy of their bus, the first logistical challenge was to successfully install everyone into their rooms. Taking care of the room-key had varying degrees of success but as the children were aware that the focus was to become more independent, many room-mates worked together to check that they always had their “Stuff!” Hats, water-bottles, sun-screen and punctuality were needed for every activity, as well as a cheery smile!

As for the actual activities, the year group had been mixed into 6 different teams and their challenges ranged from completing parachute-games to solving a tough treasure-hunt. As they advanced through the various rotations, the students were certainly developing their levels of personal organisation, self-awareness and communication. Indeed, there were many examples of pupils showing more confidence and becoming increasingly more involved.

In other matters, no trip would be complete without a party on the beach complete with a roaring fire! In addition, some of the songs from the teachers bordered on the wondrous! Wednesday evening finished with a very competitive group quiz, with the winners only being announced after a dramatic tie-breaking final question. For the after-dinner activity on Thursday, the children shared some very original dancing styles at the Long Hai disco.

By the end of the residential trip, the children were tired and ready to return to HCMC but would always have the memories and friendships that were made in Long Hai, 2015.
