Queen’s stuck with their sporty spirit on Wednesday as they entered midweek with fun activities on their minds. Now that everyone is sufficiently inundated with work to complete for the end of their programmes, sports were a welcome stress relief for everyone on campus.
Lessons were intense on Wednesday as students enter the final days of their courses. The whole cohort was preparing work for their last assignments and presentations so everyone was particularly focused on concentrating their efforts throughout the day. Teachers have been great at providing extra support with the workload for those who require it, and they have always been on hand to offer advice to the students as and when they need it.
Following their final lessons of the day, it was time for everyone to let off some steam. Counsellors conducted a running club for a large portion of these sporty students and everyone enjoyed getting their heart rate up as they raced around campus. There was also a chance for students to view the city by River, as a group headed to Magdalen Bridge to take part in punting.
After a well-deserved supper, some of the group walked the short distance to uni parks for a big game of capture the flag (a bit like tag, but the students have to protect their flag.) And it is safe to say it got very competitive, with everyone intent on keeping their flag standing firm.
The group then returned to college to chill out and play some board games, before heading for an early night to prepare for another busy day of classes on Thursday.
