Adventures in Cyprus

A group of seven Year 10 RAF cadets enjoyed the trip of a lifetime and witnessed history in the making over the Easter break when they spent ten days at the RAF base in Cyprus. The group who were joined by 53 other students from across the country experienced a wide range of activities from the bases of RAF Troodos, RAF Akrotiri, and RAF Episkopi.

As well as go karting, clay pigeon shooting, water sports, and visiting a water park, the cadets saw the RAF firefighters and visited the E.O.D (Explosive Ordnance Disposal). They also had a barbecue on a beach where refugees had landed in previous years.

The boys were in Cyprus when the RAF joined in the air strikes against Syria, following its use of chemical weapons in Douma; and were aware how close they were to watching history unfold. The boys made it back safely to the UK at the end of the trip with plenty of stories to tell!
