Celebrating the halfway mark of the students stays with us here at St Peter’s College in Oxford, the students fully engrossed themselves into hosting the ‘Wizard School’ themed party at St Catherine’s College. The students from St Hughes College would be joining the St Peter’s students, providing a brilliant opportunity to make lots of new friends. There was a brilliant selection of taste tingling soft drinks and light bites to help the students get into the party vibe before they had the chance to meet and mingle with the students studying at St Hughes.
Students were able to battle it out on the gladiator trainer, using inflatable weapons to knock their opponent off their podium. Elsewhere, a magic carpet Simulator and Bucking Bronco provided laughter all evening as contenders stepped up and continually tried to post a new best time and beat their friends.
As the sun began to set, students were ushered into the marquee, complete with full witchcraft and wizardry décor, DJ and an array of drinks and snacks to keep the party going. Although some students were hesitant or reserved at the beginning, Counsellors warmly encouraged and helped all the students to join in and by the end of the evening, everyone was dancing! The party went on late into the evening with their new friends from St Hugh’s. The students were already discussing the ‘Carnivale’ themed party next week at St Catherines College, where they will see all their new friends again.
When the students from St Hughes has left, many students quickly flopped into bed immediately without having to be told – and after a night on the dance floor, we can’t blame them. Tomorrow, there’s another adventure: a trip to Warner Brother’s Studios Harry Potter Tour has got many students very excited, especially after all the magical events from this evening.
