On Jan 7, one day prior to our departure and our last day at the build site, we had so many mixed emotions. One thing was for sure though, none of us wanted to leave.
Before heading to the build site, we were invited to the classroom located on top of the multi-purpose room where we have lunch everyday.
The adults told us that all the kids tried to skip school because they knew it was our last day. We assured them that we’d be there until nightfall and they wouldn’t be allowed to go to the party unless they went to school.
Now off to the build site.
After lunch, before going back to work, we cherished every moment we had to play with the kids.
Now back to work for the last time…….one last push to see how much we can get done!
After all the work for the day was done, we a individually signed our hardhats to give away to the community workers.
NOTE: Karol Bal-ut another student leader on the trip from Blessed Pope John Paul II who flew with her family, left 2 days early….we missed her energy!
Student leaders and teachers giveaway their hardhats to the community leaders that helped us since day one.
Before heading back, we took some time to get signatures from all our new friends.
Now back to the hotel to freshen up for tonight’s going away party!! Pictures will be on a separate post.
