“See you in 10 days!” Message from David

Hello everyone,

My name is David, although everyone at Moreton Hall calls me Dave. I am the boys’ house parent and also one of the social activities team. I am very happy to say that I will be coming back to Moreton Hall again, which will be my 8th summer at CAE.

After your English lessons in the morning, every day we have three activities: two in the afternoon and one after dinner. It is my job to help plan and run these activities, and make sure that they are interesting and exciting. I love sports; my favourite activities to teach are football, rugby and badminton. We also spend lots of time painting, swimming and cooking. If there is a special activity that you would like to do, come and talk to me! In the evenings, we have quizzes, discos, treasure hunts and team challenges, so lots of different events to enjoy.

My other job is to be the boys’ house parent. I am responsible for making sure that the boys are happy and enjoying themselves. I am there to help so if you have a problem or don’t feel well, day or night, come and talk to me. Coming to learn English in England is an amazing opportunity, so I need to make sure you enjoy it!

I am really looking forward to July; I really enjoy getting to know the students and learning about where you are from. I also can’t wait to see who wins the World Cup. Maybe we can watch the final on Sunday.

When you arrive…

Here is some advice for the day you arrive. If you are arriving in England by aeroplane, one of the team will be at the airport to meet you. If you have a lanyard, please wear it as it helps us find you in the airport. Look for the big CAE signs!

OR if you drive to Moreton Hall, knock on the door and one of the staff will come to say hello.

See you soon

To new students: I look forward to meeting you!

To returning students: welcome back to Moreton Hall! See you soon.

Last night was the Moreton Hall Treasure Hunt! The students were put into six teams. Each team had to find 20 envelopes from around the school. In the envelopes were English clues. When you had your 20 envelopes they showed you where the trophy was hidden. It was a lot of fun! The teams helped each other. After the hunt, the students were very tired.
