There was no sign of any mid-week slump at St.Peter’s yesterday! As the end of the session draws closer, all of our students are eager to make the most of every moment they have left in Oxford.
In their classes, students are busily working to the deadlines for their final projects. In the Teambuilding and Leadership class, the students were put to the test to find out how much they’ve learned over the past week and a half. They were split into groups to see who could build the tallest structure out of straws and sellotape.
The students ended up wowing the staff as they worked expertly, dividing work, allocating roles, and using each others’ strengths and weaknesses to build complex, stable structures.
After lunch, the students made the most of their free time to relax after a packed morning. Some, who had obviously been inspired by England’s victory at the weekend, headed out to the park for a game of cricket! The counsellors were really stumped to discover that there’s yet another sport our cohort excel at!
Meanwhile, those students who hadn’t had a chance to go last week headed down to the river Cherwell to try their hand at punting! As they glided down the river, the students dared each other to stand up in the boat, and by the end most students had given pushing the boat along a try!
The evening was full of choices for our students. Those who wanted to get more work done before the end of the day headed to homework club where the counsellors were standing by to help however they could. Those who’d already gotten ahead on their work settled down for a film night or got creative in a tie-dyeing workshop!
