The Staff
matthew arundel
The energetic and enthusuastic English staff met us at the airports, guided us through  the sights and taught us cricket, rugby and fives.

The American staff also contributed to the program, bringing their own expertise and experience as we shepherded dozens of kids. We had a couple of lovely "Teachers' Days Out" while the English staff were on campus with the kids.

The Adventures of Peninsula School Kids in England
In July of 2005 I chaperoned a group of 6th to 8th graders from Peninsula School on a trip to England.
Previous trips have been chaperoned by Rebecca Reynolds, currently the 5th grade teacher at Peninsula.

Where We Went
On each touring day, we went to at
least two places. Here is a quick survey of where we went each day.
