Monday morning brought a new set of challenges for our Lady Margaret’s students – the first of which was making sure they didn’t get lost as they made their way around campus! Thankfully, the counsellors were on hand to guide any wayward students and help them find their classrooms.
First lessons were filled with introductions – both to the subject and to each other – with some classes using subject-related icebreaker games to get the students chatting. Our Business and Enterprise students wasted no time getting stuck into the nuts and bolts of their course, chatting about supply and demand and going over important economic concepts.
By lunchtime, everyone was feeling relaxed and ready to take on another challenge with their new friends. This time it came in the form of a guided tour around Oxford’s tourist sights!
With our counsellors leading the way, the students explored some of the most famous spots of the city, from the Radcliffe Camera to the Bodleian Library, making sure to snap plenty of photos. Oxford has so much rich culture and history to offer and it was great to see our students all so engaged, wanting to linger at their favourite spots or glean as much information as they could from their guides.
The students fascination with the city paid off later in the evening when the counsellors sprang a surprise Oxford History round on them in the ORA quiz. There was some tough competition for the prize, with students surreptitiously hiding their answers from the teams around them. Luckily, the winning team were gracious in victory!
The rest of the evening was spent playing some games and sports on the grass outside the college or in the university parks. It looks like there are going to be plenty more fierce competitions at LMH before the session is over!
