Dancing, Debating and Punting

Dear Parents,

We’ve had another beautiful day packed full of activities here at Peterhouse. Taking advantage of the sun, the Entrepreneurship class ventured out into town to look at the various marketing strategies of local businesses. Meanwhile, in Law class, students had a debate focusing on the arguments surrounding abortion:

In the afternoon (and into the evening!) our activities directors organised a grand total of three punting trips for the students. A quintessentially Cambridge activity, punting allows the students to see into the colleges that back onto the River Cam, with sights such as the Bridge of Sighs, King’s College and the Mathematical Bridge.

The afternoon also saw the first of our Afternoon Tea sessions. We have three of these across the programme and they give students the opportunity to have a very British experience, having tea and cake with members of the teaching faculty and the admin team. There were lots of delicious treats on offer – there wasn’t much food left at the end!

In the evening our multi-talented Maths and Nature teacher Angel ran a salsa class for us, and it proved very popular with the students.

There was some relaxation in the common room afterwards as the students prepare for our first day-trip away from Cambridge tomorrow to historic Norwich.

Good night!

The CamPrep Team
