It was a good start to a Monday at Yarnton, as students looked forward to the beginning of their second week of classes here. The campus was a busy place, and with students having enjoyed a busy weekend of activities, everyone was keen to get on with their work.
After a good breakfast, everyone made their way to their classrooms to enjoy a studious morning. Classes are now in full swing, as our students prepare for their final assignments to be handed in at the end of the week. With an exciting excursion taking up the whole day on Tuesday, it was crucial for students to make a head start on their final presentations with the help of their teachers.
During lunch time, there was a chance for the group to play some games on the lawn as the sun crept through the clouds. So far, it has been a very relaxed session thanks to this cohort of students who have settled well into Yarnton, making friends with one another very easily.
In the afternoon, lessons started again with a large group returning to their Global Leadership class, during which they spoke about the importance of addressing the issue of climate change. This has been a hot topic throughout the summer here in Oxford, which has made obvious our students’ priority to address global warming.
In a Business and Enterprise class, students were discussing the complex issue of Brexit – as well as looking more generally at policies related to immigration. It was interesting to hear everyone’s views on Brexit, given its huge significance to the future of British and European politics and economics. Overall, it was an intense day of classes and everyone was eager to get some rest for their trip to London on Tuesday.
