Residential study programs for 14-18 year olds in Cambridge, UK.
Program 1: Summer 2018 - Day 11
Instagram! The Emergency Medicine add-on ran for its second day today also. The students spent the afternoon practicing A&E style medicine with top class equipment usually only accessible to paramedics. Aside from classes today, students had the opportunity to do the workshop that they didn’t do yesterday, thus they were either learning about mindfulness and happiness, or learning the most efficient methods of learning new languages. The mindfulness workshop was delivered by a practising psychologist and challenged us to question what makes us happy, and whether we can ever be truly ‘happy’. The other workshop gave us some useful visual methods for creating our own ‘mind-palaces’ in order to learn new words in other languages. We now know, through visual association, the words for ‘goat’, ‘shrimp’ and ‘cow’ in Spanish. Both very interesting workshops! The most exciting part of today was the evening activity. It was the one we’ve all been eagerly anticipating and building up to all week………. the CHARITY AUCTION!!! We had loads of students contributing their skills to auction off, with all the money raised going to our partner charity, Sabre Education. Our amazing Community Outreach student, Sandro, presented along with veteran auctioneer Scott, and they made sure it was a superb evening enjoyed by everyone present. Some of the items up for auction included language lessons, friendship bracelets, a guided tour of the Kings College Chapel roof, and a signed Reach T-shirt! We’ll update everyone tomorrow on the exact total raised for Sabre. With today’s excitement all is now quiet on the Reach campuses and we’re looking forward to tomorrow’s World Fair and the weekend excursions to come!
