Continuing our journey with this program, the Media Team takes on Centre Island for our third trip.
As we begin our adventure, Mike Consul started the day with a prayer after we got off the ferry. Then, we discussed about each team’s posters to give feedbacks and improvements. Our supervisor, Doris, informed us with some announcements about the upcoming Camp Day with Footsteps to Success camp. After our discussion, Mike decided to try to catch a fish for a bit.
When we finished with our morning topic, we decided to find a place to eat lunch. Shortly after lunch, the West end and East end team decided to film some clips for our music video, while Mike continues to fish.
After filming enough clips for our videos, the team decided to bike around the island with a quad-cycle – a bicycle with four people. Here we learned the true meaning of “teamwork” as we competed who can be the fastest. The first team consisted of: Neil, Rachel, Karen, and Francesca. Then second team included: Dana, Kevin, Keesha, and Sebastian. Lastly, the third team were: Mike, Chase, Doris, Aaliyah, and Natalie.
Each person in each bike had to pedal in order for it to work and be balanced. As we race and pedal away, the first two teams had to stop as both bikes broke down. Sebastian and Kevin were able to fix the bike easily, and even though Neil was on the opposite team, they still decided to help him fix their bike. Soon, we all continued our race and everyone’s competitive side was revealed, even Mike’s!
We then took a break for a few minutes to take pictures of the beautiful skyline of Toronto and just appreciate the scenery. After, we all went back to where we started and in the end, every team won!
Being all hot and sweaty after the race, we went back to the fountain to cool off. The water was very cool and refreshing everyone took off their shoes and went in the fountain. While everyone was just freshening up and splashing each other, Sebastian decided to collect the coins that was in the fountain. He sure is going to get a lot of bad luck!
This might be the end of our day, but this is not the end of our journey. We still have a lot to learn, experience new things, and practice life skills. This day just made everyone even closer together not just as a team, but as a family!
