As Friday morning dawned at St Hugh’s, it was clear our students had a case of friday fever – they were all noisier than usual at breakfast, chatting and laughing together about the upcoming weekend.
Luckily, students were able to reign in their excitement for a few hours during the morning’s classes. It was just as well too – there were some very complex concepts being tackled. Never one to waste a day, the Introduction to Robotics students were working on programming their own creations to turn smoothly and detect lines. This all culminated in a race in the early afternoon between all the robots created so far!
Meanwhile, our Film Academy students are well into their final projects already. Today was their second of three filming days before they begin editing next week – looks like there’ll be some hollywood-worthy films produced this session!
In the afternoon, it was time, at last, for our students to head down to the River Cherwell and try their hand at some punting! The activity had been highly anticipated by our students, so by the time the boats left the jetty they were brimming with students. As it was a windy day, it was a rockier ride than our students had been expecting, which only made it more impressive when some stood up in the boats to try punting themselves! Luckily, nobody ended up in the river!
Then it was time to head back to St Hugh’s for a party in the dining hall! The hall had been transformed into a dance floor where the students could either live out their DJ dreams by controlling the music or simply have fun moving to the beat!
In the moments between songs, students admired the tower of 216 doughnuts, played Twister or had their faces painted. It was a great way for our students to have some fun after a busy week!
