Residential study programs for 14-18 year olds in Cambridge, UK.
Spring 2019: Day 6
A bittersweet day in Cambridge as we prepare to say goodbye to our week 1 students, but excited to welcome our next students this weekend for week 2. For the final full day of Spring Week 1, the students had another jam-packed and enjoyable schedule planned! The day started off with the fruition of the students’ mini project: the presentations. Students addressed each other on a range of topics, including informative depictions of their home countries, and talks on widespread issues such as monetary greed, world hunger, and unhappiness. The students’ speeches were all spectacular, and the core message of each of them – that we should cherish our loved ones and help those in need – was enough to inspire great hope for the future generation. Students then had free time and lunch in town, before heading back to Reach Hall for a lecture on study and revision skills by our very own Ros. The students shared their own revision tactics, and thought up ways of ensuring efficient work, while also keeping themselves healthy and happy! The students were then told about becoming Reach Ambassadors and were really keen to take on the responsibility and reward of sharing their experiences of Reach with their school and their friends back home. We can’t wait to hear about what they all go on to do in the future and hope Reach has helped them prepare for the next step. After this, it was party time! An Italian dinner of pasta, salad, pizza etc with chocolate cookies or ice cream. After this, some excellent bowling skills were exhibited and fun was had by all! Although we are sad to say goodbye to those who are have been with us for 1 week, we know they’ve made friends for life and we’ve loved having them on the program. To those students who are staying on, I know they can’t wait to meet the new arrivals this weekend and find out more about the final week of Spring next week.
