Yom Ha’atzmaut was a wonderful day filled with fun activities. The children really had a “ball” celebrating Israel’s birthday. The highlight of the day was “taking a plane trip” to Israel. All the children landed at Ben Gurion airport. They each made their own passport and had them stamped by officials on arrival. They visited the Kotel, the desert, an army base and learnt Israeli dancing. They ended their journey with a visit to the Shuk, where they used their Shekels to buy falafel, pita and oranges.
