Laura Gallacher (class P4ENG) is the winner of the PA Ballon Release Competition organized for our 50th JUBILEE on the 29 th of May 2010 ! Congratulations !
Laura’s balloon travelled up to Rosmalen (The Netherlands) , i.e. a distance of 80 km from the School where it was released ! A Dutch family found it on the same day, hung on the barbed wire in a field. Imagine how fast the balloon travelled thanks to the windy weather at that moment !
Out of 200 balloons released, 39 balloons cards were found and returned to us. Please have a look on the map below, you will get an idea of how far and wide the balloons spread. The circled places are the locations where people found the balloons. Interesting, isn’t it ?
