Episode 1

The group traveled to Apeldoorn and visited the Apenheul.

What the students thought:

‘Today was fun and interesting. The monkeys were cute, especially the small ones.’
‘We are having lots of fun in our room – we’re all friends.’
‘I really liked our room and our roommates. We had some difficulties with the beds but our neighbours helped us.’
‘A monkey went on my arm and it was awesome.’

Episode 2

The students played flashlight tag, had a lovely time at a water play park and challenged themselves at Klimbos.

Student quotes:

‘We are not going to choose the good stuff, we are children after all’ – overheard at the breakfast table.

‘I love this zip line. This is sooooooo much fun. Now I am soooo petrified!’ – Overheard at Klimbos

Episode 3

Message from the staff:

‘We’ve had a fantastic few days together. For a significant part, because the kids have been absolutely wonderful. We’ve received compliments from the zoo keepers and the instructors at Klimbos, for our student’s behaviour. The students should be very proud of themselves!’
