During the Easter holiday, boys from Year 9 travelled to Orlando, accompanied by Miss Esswood, Miss Hawley, Mrs Senaratne and Miss Chambers. The group spent time at Kennedy Space Centre where they waited patiently for the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket to launch the Arabsat 6A communications satellite. Unfortunately, on the day they visited, the rocket did not launch due to technical problems.
Time was also spent visiting the various attractions and theme parks, including a day snorkelling with Manatees in the Mexican Gulf.
Thank you to all our staff who were away with various trips during the holidays. Many things make St. Olave’s a great place to be a student and the opportunities available through national and international trips is certainly one of them.
