    What are the houses like there and where are you living? (Anna + Aaron) – There is a mixture of all kinds of accommodation. Everything from decorations to toilets are very different!
    Are you having fun working in PEPY? (Adam O’ S) – I’m having a great experience thanks Adam. Are you having fun in Fiachra’s 4th class?
    What’s the time difference in Cambodia are in Ireland? (Rebecca) – Hi Rebecca. It is seven hours
    What are the main animals in Cambodia? (Luke B) – Elephants, tigers and snakes are all common here. Where are your favourite animals Luke?

    Do kids in PEPY have sensory areas? (Erica) – I haven’t seen any Erica. Children here love playing outside and the weather is rarely wet at this time of year which is nice.
    What is the favourite place you have been so far in Cambodia? (Luke M) – I love Siem Reap. There are some fantastic temples nearby and it is such a nice place to live.

    At night time are there crickets or anything else around when you are trying to sleep? (Luke H) – Yes there are Luke. There are loads and loads of geckos. They are quite loud and annoying at times
    Do you go on school tours? (Princess) – We do indeed. The students went on an adventure camp last month and we go on trips around the area. It’s very nice to get out and about. Where are you going on your school tour Princess? Can I come?
    How old is Cambodia as a country? (Kenneth) – Cambodia was colonised by the French and they ruled it up until 1953
    Is soccer popular in Cambodia? (Robert) – Yes it is Robert. I play on a soccer team which is great fun. Barcelona, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are popular teams.
    What is your favourite place Colm? (Justin) – I love the temples and running around Angkor Wat is cool!
    Whats the most popular sport in Cambodia? (Roben) – Volleyball, kickboxing and football are very popular Roben. What sports do you like!
