Things got radioactive as students learned about spectroscopy and researched energy-emitting isotopes. Business Finance students studied other kinds of reactions and interactions in their class on the Bretton Woods system, established in the mid-20th century to govern monetary relations between the United States, Canada, Western Europe, Australia and Japan.
In the afternoon, students went on a special visit to Christ Church, where they admired the works of art in the Picture Gallery (the gallery holds around 300 Old Master paintings and nearly 2,000 drawings), basked in the tranquil grandeur of the quads and cathedral, and felt like Hogwarts students when looking up at the Hall’s hammerbeams (built in the 16-century by Humphrey Coke, Henry VIII’s chief carpenter). Students even initiated a photo competition amongst themselves, inspired by the stately and historic architecture on show.
That evening, students entered the magical world of Narnia at the themed party hosted at Kingston Bagpuize House. Here they engaged in such activities as Surf Simulating, Balloon Bursting, and generally dancing the evening away. Those with stouter sensibilities braved the psychic tent to have their fortunes told ―all that we can say for sure is that they have a certain royal residence in their future!
