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.

My name is David (but any returning students will know me as Dave), I am one of the social activities staff and this year will be my 6th summer with CAE at Moreton Hall.
… If you would like a challenge after reading this, try to find my face in the previous years’ Course Photos … (To give you a hint: I am in eight pictures between 2011 and 2015).
One of my jobs at Moreton Hall is to help run the afternoon & evening activities. After the English lessons in the morning, we have two activities in the afternoon and a third activity after dinner, so we have a variety of events to keep you all entertained!
I love Sports, so my favourite activities to teach are football and badminton. If you prefer a quieter afternoon, we also offer cooking & art lessons, and when the sun is out, we spend some time in the swimming pool. The evening activities vary from team challenges and outdoor games to discos – (always very popular). My favourite event from last summer was the Charity Shop Challenge, which is where teams used clothes to make outfits to match characters from films!
My other role at Moreton Hall is being the boys’ house parent. It is my job to make sure that the boys are safe and happy. Spending a summer in another country is an amazing opportunity, and so we need to be sure that you enjoy being with us. So if you have any problems, questions, or if you don’t feel well, you can come and talk to me! I’m there to help you.
I’m really looking forward to Moreton Hall 2016. I love getting to know the children and learning more about where you are all from. So, to all new students – I look forward to meeting you in a few weeks time – Welcome! ; and to any returning students, Welcome back!
See you all soon!
