As we approach the end of the session, excitement is building for Friday’s graduation ceremony! The students were all chattering about what they planned to wear and discussing the party’s witches and wizards theme as they ate breakfast.
In the day’s classes, the students were gearing up for their final presentations and assessments at the end of the week. For our Acting and Performance students, this means they’re choosing short scenes to perform for the rest of the class on Friday, and though none of them are showing any signs of stage fright, it’s clear they’re all working hard to do well!
In the afternoon, the students had some free time which they chose to spend on two of the cohorts emerging favourite activities: football and punting.
As most of our students have already taken a trip down the river at least once, they’re becoming pretty skilled at steering the punts down the river. For most of the cohort, the fear of falling in the river has long disappeared and they glide along quite gracefully – just like the swans which have taken to accompanying them!
Those who chose to stay behind and play football fell into familiar teams to try and score as many wins as possible for their side before the session ended.
For the evening, there were friendship bracelet making sessions and some t-shirt tie dyeing for our artistic students and for those who wanted to develop their teamwork and public speaking skills there was a model UN.
With more deadlines still to come, homework club was as popular as ever, marking another great routine that the students have fallen into! Quite a few of the cohort squeezed in a great half hour of work before they headed to bed.
