Our Last Few Days in Cusco

Can you believe this adventure is almost finished? We cannot! However, we are making the most of our last few days as we prepare to write exams and say goodbye to all of the friends we have made over the past months.

Film class has been making good use of the lobby to film scenes for their ISP. It will be screened for the first time after the final banquet and we can’t wait to see the storyline that involves Stephen looking very “Bond-like” at a desk as Yax receives his instructions. Should be interesting!

Leadership continues to organize us into various groups and activities. Maddi led us through the scavenger hunt, Victoria organized a mindfulness session, Stephen created the hilarious and very creative game “Wheel of Misfortune”. He made Kathy and George captains of their respective teams, the hotel reception may never be the same after watching the competition that ensued. Luke organized a wonderfully relaxing yoga session except for the tour who checked into their hotel rooms in the middle of our activity. I’m sure they had no idea what was happening.

The science classes are studying hard and World Issues is preparing to present their final seminars. All in all, lots of activity.

So, what do you do when the wifi at the hotel isn’t working? No worries, you head to Starbucks where the wifi is perfect and there is always a parade in the main plaza just outside the window. The sights and sounds of Cusco are colourful and very entertaining. Cute little children and their parents marching and dancing, bands playing and always the mountains in the background. We will miss this little town.

Thank you for your interest in Blyth Academy Global High School.

After careful consultation with our staff and vendors, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Global High School program for the 2020-21 school year. Given significant and widespread disruptions to global travel, and the uncertainty of when operations will return to normal, it is simply not possible to plan and operate these programs to our high standards of safety and execution.

For more information, or to talk through possible options, please contact the Admissions team via admissions@blytheducation.com or 416-960-3552. The Admissions team can also speak to you about options to complete the current academic year if this is of interest as well.
