The students staying at St Peter’s College had a full day of academic commitments with a full morning of lessons and an afternoon workshop. Every day the students become more prepared to attend a top university in Britain. Students are always being given expert guidance on how to fill in university applications, write personal statements and how to nail an interview. Practicing these key factors give the students a competitive edge over other applicants for limited spaces. The students are racing through their curriculums and continually testing the teaching staff, forever eager to gain as much out of the experience as possible.
After a full day in the classroom, the students were plunged straight into a Stage Combat workshop. The interactive activity provides a specialized technique designed for theatre to create the illusion of real physical combat on stage, without causing any harm whatsoever to performers. The students loved the exaggerated and somewhat melodramatic nature of the class, really throwing themselves into their performances, much to the amusement of the rest of the groups. Following dinner, the students participated in an African drumming workshop known as Chango Lingo. The students learned how to synchronise their rhythms and had the whole group pulsing to the beat of the drums.
