Wednesday was presentation day for many of our students at St Andrews, with a chance to showcase the wonderful work that they have been doing during their stay.
Their studious approach not only to lessons but also to their homework paid off as the presentations were all fantastic. Covering an array of topics, from Orbital Mechanics to the physics of bridges, the presentations were engaging and well-researched.
The setting for the culmination of our students’ work was a lecture room in the Purdie Building. The room is frequently used for university lectures and the students displayed first class behaviour to match their surroundings, listening respectfully and asking some great questions.
After the presentations had been concluded, the students had a well-earned treat as they headed out into the beautiful sunshine and took part in a scavenger hunt around the historic St Andrews.
The students were very keen to do well, particularly with a range of ORA prizes riding on the outcome, and they showed great teamwork skills to work together towards their goal.
The hunt was a good chance to interact with the friendly locals, and even try on some ‘traditional’ Scottish garb! It was great to see everyone having fun in the sunshine, and reinforcing the firm friendships they have made since their arrival.
