This morning GES Cairo pupils had an early start and headed to Skytrex Adventure Park. Although everyone was extremely sleepy during the bus ride there, all yawns evaporated once they started to 'learn the ropes'. The Double Dare adventure was both tiring and absolutely invigorating. You could hear the cheering and the laughter miles away. We are extremely proud of Jana Q, Lama and Hamza for conquering their fear of heights and completing all 43 high ropes and zip lines without a fret (well maybe just a few). One final picture before we say 'Goodnight'!
