Residential study programs for 14-18 year olds in Cambridge, UK.
Spring Program: Day 13
We had our final full English breakfast at Cote Brasserie this morning. The sun was shining, the company was delightful and the food was delicious! After everyone had finished their hot chocolates, the students attended a session in essay and report writing skills, finishing off with a 20-minute practice essay to consolidate all that they had learnt. For lunch we dug into the classic British comfort food of jacket potatoes. This gave the students the energy to enter a heated debate at the Cambridge Union about the European Union referendum in the UK last year. Each student had the chance to stand up on the podium (where famous speakers have debated from for over 200 years) and share their viewpoint. Afterwards, the staff and students let off some steam on the football pitch with a final score of 7-5 and some unforgettable goals on either side. They then had free time in town to enjoy the beautiful town centre for one of their final times. Following dinner, we had an exciting presentation and educational game on Survival Cooking hosted by our own supervisor Sam! We learnt all about student budgeting, self-catering and living in shared accommodation before putting it into practice in a game of ‘House of Samuel’. After such a busy day, we will be ready for bed before the final day of the spring program! We can’t believe it’s nearly over. Tomorrow holds the promise of some wonderful workshops including a leadership workshop, and student presentations, finished off with a scrumptious final night meal.
