Goodbye Pirates and Goodbye New Zealand

After a great year with The Pirates, I sadly left at the end of Term 3 when the class was taken over by Mrs Duncan and I returned to the UK as my partner returned their for work reasons – much to my disappointment!

I had promised that I would post something related to what we were doing on our way back home on the blog. So, here are a few photos of our recent adventures before finally leaving New Zealand.

The first set are related to winter mountaineering and of one of the mountains Richard and I climbed in New Zealand – Mt. Aspiring.

The photo below is of the Rugby World Cup Final which despite my attempts to rally the children around supporting England, we were out of the competition so I happily went in supporting THE ALL BLACKS who, much to my delight, won!

Pirates, enjoy your summer holidays and have a great year next year.

For worldwide viewers who follow this blog, I will hopefully be back blogging with a new class once I have one again!
