A total of eight new students have arrived at HESC. Two of them are here on their honeymoon, Serena and Daniel, all the way from Barcelona in Spain, and they are only joining us for one week. Pat, who has travelled to HESC all the way from the USA, is also our oldest volunteer at the age of 78 years old!
