There was one other name I learned: Overijise. Pronounced Over-raise.

It did not even sound like a place. It sounded like an action, to over-raise. It sounded like one of the pointless gymnasium tasks you were set in the PE lesson. One, two, three … and over-raise.

But Overijise was all the talk at the Woluwe primary school. The autumn term had just begun, it was still hot, and everyone kept repeating the name Overijise. Matthew explained we would be going to Overijise every day for two weeks, and that meant two weeks of swimming and games and no lessons.
