Great Expectations

Every summer school that I attend I am always surprised and delighted by the wonderful mix of nationalities, talents and personalities on campus. It is always a real pleasure to spend the summer with so many entertaining young people. This year has been no exception.

So far this year the young people have enjoyed social events including 'Deal or No Deal' with the lucky winner receiving a 'whole' chocolate bar for their courage under duress. Last night the brave students undertook the 'Do or Die' challenge and got to grips with cold spaghetti. custard and tricky British quiz questions.

English classes and workshops have got off to a great start with students creating music lyrics, shadow puppet performances, magazine articles and exploring the local history and landscape.

Hopefully the sun will shine for the entire summer, and we will continue to have such a good time.
