Program 3: Summer 2018 – Day 4
Although the weather in Cambridge may have been grey and gloomy, Day 4 brought even more fun and educational activities for our students! Today included many stimulating classes and experiences, starting with the Business Management and Economics students, who made an exciting trip to the ‘escape room’, and learned about the art of science and influence. Our politics students investigated the surprising intricacies of the chocolate laws in the European Union, whilst the physics were taught about the mechanics of constructing motors!
After an engaging morning of classes, the typical British rainy weather didn’t hold any of our students back, as they took part in many fun indoor activities throughout the afternoon. Students were keen to join in with a fantastic Zumba workout, which was a great way to exercise on a gloomy, rainy day. With tunes ranging from Michael Jackson, to hits from Grease and the stylings of ABBA, the dance moves and amusing lack of coordination of the supervisors put a smile on everyone’s faces! Other students, instead of choosing to raise their heart-rates with the invigorating dance-aerobics, decided to express their more artistic side by joining in with arts and crafts. T-shirt painting was an enjoyable and popular way for the students to relax and get creative, and our Reachers even had the chance to personalise and decorate their very own water bottles. The “glamyards” activity also meant that students could renovate their original plain lanyards into more eye-catching colourful ones of their own!
Despite the fact that there was no lecture tonight, the excitement of bidding wars took over in the Trinity Hall Lecture Theatre as a lively and exhilarating charity auction took place. This auction was held to raise money for Sabre Education, our partner charity who continue to do amazing work in rural Ghana, improving the quality of education and building brighter futures for children, particularly in the kindergarten sector. Both staff and students auctioned off activities for the cause based on their interests and skills, resulting in experiences ranging from exclusive punting tours, to French and contemporary dance lessons, and that’s just to name a few!
After another eventful day, we can’t wait for yet another fun-filled day of learning to come tomorrow!
