Our trainees did amazingly today in such hot weather to go to Victoria Park cycling with Bikeworks and playing tennis on the courts.

We made sure everyone had plenty of water, hit the shade to stay cooler and we took the day really easy. We also introduced the group to two new student placements called Tanjina and Shakila.

Juanita said "It was amazing today! We did the cycling with Bikeworks which was good. Then we did the tennis but it was too hot."

Sharif said "It was really good today. We did cycling. I went on the recliner and the chain broke. Then I went on a two wheeler and tried really hard and did really well. Then we did tennis after lunch went that was really good."

Ajmol said "Today we went and did the cycling. I went round the park and had some exercise. After lunch we went and played tennis. Then it was boiling hot weather. But we played doubles."

Then we had lunch and then we played tennis and we had to practise first and then we had to play a match. And I was on Juanita team and we won! Juanita did some good shots."

Today CORE Projects said good bye to Sesay our final student placement from University of East London before the summer. We held a short presentation before going to All Star Lanes in Brick Lane to bowl and eat.

Sharif said "It was really good the bowling and I got 111 and I was second.
I was top of my group. I had the chicken burger and it was really nice and I really enjoyed it and would go back there again. I would call it 10 star bowling."

Shaheen said "Today was really really hot, the bowling was a little bit alright, the food was really, really nice but there was too much of it. The drink was really nice. It’s a really nice place that is nice and big and you can relax when you are having your food.
I miss Sesay and sad to see him go."

Taz said "The bowling was ok. I have done some bowling before. The food was ok. I had the chicken burger and fries. It was too much food."

Wobi said "The bowling was great fun and a good day. The food was good and I finish all my food and drink. The place was nice and I would like to go there again."

Juanita said "It was amazing today. The bowling was good and different because I have never been in there before. The food was nice but the burger was too big! The place was spotless."

Karen said "The bowling was awesome and I have been there before. I got a few half strikes as well. The food was awesome too. Everything was good. It was very clean and big place to go and eat."

Fathema said "It was really good and I enjoyed bowling the ball. I liked the food but the burger was too big to hold and I had to cut it in half. The food was nice but it had lemon in it. I took that out. It was a really nice place and we can go together as a family."

Rukya said "Today we went bowling and it was the last day we will see Sesay. We all went to do bowling and and the after bowling we had foood to eat. My team won the bowling. Then we had a big burger with fries and it was very nice and tasty and crunchy. We said good bye tomSrsay and it was very sad to see him go. The place was very nice."

Ajmol said "It was good and I liked doing the bowling and I had two spare. I was a bit rubbish but it was good. The food was ok and tasty chicken.
