On Wednesday students at St Catharine’s had the chance for a cultural afternoon. Everyone has settled in well to the atmosphere in Cambridge, and trips into the city saw another opportunity for the group to get to know this historic centre a little better.
The day began as usual, with a good breakfast followed by informative lessons. As the students entered their third day of classes, teachers were beginning to go into more detail, challenging the students a little more to keep their minds whirring.
Following an intense morning of classes, students had the option to go into town independently or to visit the Fitzwilliam Museum. Most of the group chose to see the city from their own point of view, taking their own free time to explore the sights and shops with their new friends. A small group made the short walk to the Fitzwilliam Museum.
The Fitzwilliam Museum is closely associated with the University of Cambridge and is used as a resource for those studying there. It houses an array of wonderful works of art, historical artefacts and paintings. The Neo-Classical design of the museum impressed our students and the afternoon was a relaxed and informative affair.
The day was rounded off by some punting down the River Cam before students returned to college to make their own dream catchers and take part in a scavenger hunt! All in all, it was a very busy day.
