A lie in was on the cards for most of our Lady Margaret’s cohort yesterday. With registration running a little longer, lots of the students took the opportunity to start the morning later and slower than they usually would.
Once breakfast was cleared away, a more concentrated mood took over as the students did some independent study. For some, this was a chance to finish off last pieces of homework while for others it was a chance to pick the brains of our staff and counsellors on subjects of personal interest.
With another warm day on their hands, the students had hoped to reunite with the Yarnton cohort for a mini ORA olympics in the university parks. Though Yarnton couldn’t make it, that didn’t stop our students from having a ball! From running races to arm-wrestling, tennis to sit-up competitions, the students pitted themselves against each other in every sport possible.
To cool off after all that activity, the counsellors had brought some water pistols along to the park and battle broke out amongst the students! A sprinkler in the centre of the parks made for an excellent secret weapon and the two sides had a laughter-filled afternoon in the sun.
With our students smiles as sunny as the weather, everyone headed back to campus to get changed and then celebrate the end of the week with a pizza night. The more relaxed dinner hit the perfect note, ending the day with as much chilled-out contentment as it had begun.
