Thursday was spent with an interesting and exciting visit to the Eden Project - a bit of Cornish rain but much fun was had by all.
Friday was our Grand Finale with the State Banquet and Presentations in the evening. The Presidents and Vice-Presidents of each of the four states spent the morning with Ms Prior, perfecting their speeches and presentations. With awards for the businesses to discuss, food and drink to organise and the evening's entertainment to sort out, there was plenty to do. We did still find time to arrange a trip to a local nature park for a couple of hours' fresh air and walking in the autumn leaves!
In the evening, many host families and business "owners" came to The Studio where we were treated to a fantastic speech and presentation by the Presidents and Vice Presidents. The Europia flag was ceremoniously handed over to the French (who will be hosting a similar event in April 2018) and awards were presented to four of our businesses (details to follow). Once the official business was over, students and families were invited to indulge in a magnificent "banquet" (prepared by Ms Barrow, our Food Tech teacher) which was followed by karaoke and a disco.
