Here you will find a written update of the day’s events, written by members of the Reach Cambridge staff. We hope it will be an enjoyable and useful resource for parents and students alike.
It’s been a busy and beautiful day here in Cambridge and we have been so excited to meet all the students and welcome them to Reach. Students have travelled from all across the globe to join us and were met by our friendly staff in our bright orange t-shirts at the airports and in Cambridge! The afternoon went by in a blur of sunshine, water, snacks, games of Monopoly and trivia, and, most importantly, a whole host of smiling new faces! Supervisors led a series of tours around Cambridge city centre, pointing out places of note such as banks, shops selling UK SIM cards, and some famous colleges along the way.
After a hearty dinner, students were escorted to Trinity Hall for the Welcome Talk, given by Program Co-Director Jenny & the rest of the Senior Team. The students were introduced to their dedicated and caring staff members, and were also split up into their Fire & Ice teams, to compete for points throughout the program!
The students then met their corridor supervisors, who will be living on the same floor as them during their time with us. After a bit of time to bond and settle into their corridors, our students have been ushered to get a good night’s sleep. We’re always amazed by the stamina of those who have travelled such a long way to be with us!
Classes begin, and the students will have their first taste of the usual Reach Cambridge timetable. Make sure you come back to hear how it all goes – and if you’re on Facebook or Instagram, why not follow Reach Cambridge so you can follow our Story?
