Program 2: Leader 2017 – Day 11
The Penultimate Day, and what a day it was indeed!
The day began with classes as usual, but this time with a twist! Business and Economics, along with their teacher, took off to Kings’ College for a once in-a-program opportunity to have a tour of the college. At the same time, the Law students travelled to Cambridge Crown Court to get a feel of what it’s like to be in a real courtroom, with some potential lawyers and barristers among the students showing off what they had learned. Perhaps most visually interesting of all, the Psychology students took to the streets local to Downing College for some social experiments…
The students then had a well-deserved lunch break, wandering the streets of lovely Cambridge (in pairs or groups of course!) for one of the last times. They ensured that they used this time to the fullest before heading back to Downing or Trinity Hall Colleges for sports – or, as was the case for the Add-On students, some more creative writing.
Before they knew it, it was time for Corridor Dinner! All the corridor supervisors put together a wonderful meal (from Domino’s mostly) for all of the students in their corridor: the last Corridor Dinner of Leader 2017! It was so good to enjoy some precious quality time before what was sure to be a packed evening for both the students and supervisors alike.
In the evening, we went to the Engineering department for a very informative lecture on Archaeology. And finally, it was time for the grand event that’s got everybody talking… The Talent Show!!!
The Talent Show had been anticipated by many, with many signing up for an act from Week 1 of the program – commitment! Some star supervisors (led by Lily) had been rehearsing all day for their introductory number… a routine choreographed to ‘Reach for the Stars’: what other song could it have been! A great way to start off the show.
Following on from the fantastic supervisors, we had the likes of Aral displaying his impromptu photoshopping skills, Vidur on the keys followed by Sam on the accompanied by Anupam on the mic’, Chenchen showing us how to bust some moves on the dancefloor Christine and Natalie showing off their amazing vocal skills. We then had a sing-a-long to ‘How Far I’ll Go’ from Moanna (which was great if I do say so myself) which prepared us for the evening’s final act from our own Program Coordinator Holly, who sang and played the keys at the same time: absolutely sensational!!
What an evening it was, so many activities and hidden talents that we did not know about! Another great day at Reach, and now we prepare for the final day.
Here’s a group rendition from the Talent Show to play us out…
