Residential study programs for 14-18 year olds in Cambridge, UK.
Program 3: Scholar 2017 - Day 1
Sabre Trust. Sabre is the wonderful charity that Reach works with to improve the education available to poor and marginalised children in rural Ghana (for more on how Reach supports the charity, read this blog). Immediately after the lecture we began the exciting evening activity- ‘Squad Wars’. We assembled into different teams led by supervisors and began a series of challenges, tasks and questions to compete for winning place. Amongst the challenges were ‘Vegetable Fishing’, ‘Bridge the Gap’ and ‘Trashion Show’. There are some hilarious photos of these events, some of which were visible on the Reach Cambridge Instagram Story (for 24 hours only!). There was some great dexterity in hooking an assortment of vegetables and there was also some wonderful creativity in the improvised trash-fashion in which the teams crafted some very unique outfits from newspapers and bin-bags! We all enjoyed getting competitive with each other and having some lively fun. After the games ended, we revealed the winning teams and adjourned back to our colleges for some free time before bed. What a great start to the week! ~ by Marie (Supervisor & English Literature graduate from the University of Lancaster)
