This week in the Panda Class we studied the work of a flight attendant for IPC. We looked at the “Crew Assignment sheet”, which shows which members of the cabin crew are working on a particular flight. Before each flight the cabin crew meets (briefing) to discuss the flight details, such as the flight time, configuration (all passengers or partly cargo), what time you have to be on board, who works in which galley and which CA (cabin attendant) is responsible for which door. We also studied the working method sheet, a crew sheet for the hotel and a flight request form. More often than not, flight attendants have different colleagues on every flight, but it is possible to request to fly with someone you know and then you have to fill in a request form.
The children of the Panda class were handed boarding passes to fly to Chicago. They took their seats and we went through the talk that the purser does before take off through the pas (public address system, looks like a phone), and of course the flight safety procedures.
Then the children wrote their own “purser talk”, dressed up as a purser and took us on a safe flight. The jacket had the actual wing on it that flight attendants wear!
A big well done to the Dolphins class for their assembly, and a reminder to parents that they are welcome to come in to see the display and read the version their child wrote. Also a big thank you to Heleen, Esther and Gabby who helped with the face paint and costumes!
The hotel that I stayed at, in South Africa (Cape town) was awesome. Despite the long wait to get are room, the service and rooms were brilliant. Whenever you asked for service they would be up too your room within a few minutes. In the room that I was staying in, the beds were as soft as a cloud, also when you got back from sight seeing or a meal, the room would be immaculately clean.
The food was delicious and there was a big variety of different types of food to choose from.
Outside there was a gigantic pool where you could swim and comfortable deck chairs where you could sunbath.
I think that this is the most friendly,good serviced hotel with loads of things to do. I recommend you go there next time you go to South Africa.
This hotel in Virginia Beach called the Hilton was brilliant. We had great room service, the beds were perfectly clean and comfortable and the food was great. When we got to the hotle, they made a swan out of a towel. On the roof, there was a large pool inside and outside, a hot tub, showers, a great view overlooking the sea and a bar with lounge chairs and lounge sets. In the lobby, there was a comfortable sitting area, however it was a bit small. The rest was stunning and spectacular! Oh I forgot, the bathrooms were clean and fresh. Also it had a high balcony but my mom was afraid. Back in the lobby, it had a place where you could get towels and things for the beach and there was a restauraunt. Well I think that’s it!
P.S. A man parks your car for you and takes your things for you!

The Amwaj hotel was awfull
The ants were creeping around the whole hotel room. It was very small and not well decorated.
And also we read on the website the it had very nice view and sadly we looked out of the window and all we saw was a tree standing right in front of the window.
Also the food was very bad; the meat was mostly not cooked and most guests got sick from the breakfast eggs. Also our matresses looked like they were rotten.
In addition there was nothing to do nearby and if you wanted to do something you needed to go on to a bus with no air con for an hour.
In conclusion I found this the worst hotel I’ve ever been to!

This hotel in Germany was fantastic. They had good service with nice people helping and if you needed something then they would get or help you. It had a huge swimming pool with a slide that was filled with water. In the slide it had a part which had red lights. The red lights looked liked lava which spit out of the volcano even though the lights were not hot. The food was fabulous! The only bad part was it was TOO hot.
