Breakfast yesterday was full of excited chatter as our students looked forward to their second exciting excursion in the afternoon! This time the students were staying a little closer to home as all the options on the table were sights closer to Oxford: Oxford Castle, Blenheim Palace, Christ Church, Harcourt Arboretum and the Ashmolean Museum.
All the excitement made the walk to morning classes much noisier than usual, but students soon settled down as their lessons began. As they’re nearing the end of their time here, the students were eager to make the most of all the lesson time they have left.
After lunch, it was time for the students to split up and head off on their excursions! The most popular choice by far was Oxford Castle!
Led by an excellent (and costumed!) guide, the students climbed to the top of the tallest tower and explored the darkest spots in the dungeon! With over 1,000 years of history hidden amongst the stone, there were plenty of curious questions and awed gasps as the students made their way around.
Never ones to miss a photo opportunity, the students made good use of all the old prison equipment as props and backgrounds for their photos!
Back at LMH, the students spent the evening playing sports and exchanging stories about their days in their spare breaths! As they went off to bed, the students were all pretty exhausted from such an active day, but there wasn’t an unhappy face to be found.
