Our last summer reward trip saw 9 students from The Archbishop Lanfranc Academy go on a #FBBSchools tour to Belgium as a reward for their hard work over the past year.
After a long car journey from London to Brussels, their first reaction was summed up best by Munir – “everything is always bigger, like all the buildings are bigger you have to look up”. It was a new adventure for all of the boys who had never been to Belgium before. On the 2nd day they went to Oceada Water Park before preparing for their first match in the afternoon. They worked really well as a team and came away with a 7-3 win!
FBB Participant Cameron, who scored 5 goals, said “We all stayed calm and no-one got angry, we played like a professional team.”
Day 3 they had the opportunity to explore more of Belgian culture. They visited the Parc du Cinquantenaire and went shopping in the capital. It was also their teachers’ birthday so the boys went out for a meal to celebrate. The whole trip was a great success the boys had a brilliant time and got on well as group.
Tom Bateman, Teacher at Archbishop Lanfranc Academy said “Belgium was a great way to reward a fantastic group for their hard work over the past 3 years. It was another experience they will never forget and has broadened their world view a little bit further. They showed their maturity as a group and set a high standard of collaboration, respect and positivity”.
