In a flash we are back again – Reach Cambridge Program 2 has officially started!
Today, we were excited to welcome new students to Cambridge city where our second program of the summer will take place. It was a bustling morning with transporting students from the airport, or being the first face they see as others made their own way to Cambridge with their parents. We were thrilled to introduce our supervisors and combo-students who were here for the first program also. Being experts already on the college layouts, making friends and leading the way was easy!
As the new students settled into their beautiful college campus rooms, our supervisors took them on a fun and interactive tour around the city! Passing through the college greens, the buzzing market with delicious local food, the famous Cam river and plenty more – really the perfect way to introduce the students to their new temporary home in the heart of Cambridge. A strong sense of community has already formed, with friendships blooming between these students from all around the world!
After getting to know the other students on their corridors, the students had their first dinner in the extravagant dining halls, where plates were cleaned quickly after a busy day of walking around. In the Trinity Hall Lecture Theatre we held the P2 Welcome Talk, where they were given a peek of what the week has in store for them, as well as introducing them to our fantastic supervisor team!
We finished the welcome talk by heading back to the colleges for some Ice Breaker Games which further allowed the students and staff to bond and get to know each other – it was such a blast! After a busy but fun-filled day, students headed to their beds eager for some well-deserved rest. Sleep well P2 team – we will see you in class tomorrow!
