Tea, Talent and Terrific Weather

Hello Parents,

Today the students had a break from studies and had a glorious summer day to enjoy a full schedule of activities outside. The morning hosted a trip to local sporting facilities for games of basketball, badminton and football (soccer). Students wanting to stay closer to Peterhouse had a game of capture the flag in the college’s private “Deer Park”.

Well done to Julia, one of our Deans, who used her morning off to participate in the Cambridge Race for Life 10 kilometre run in support of Cancer Research UK. Julia is a cross country coach at her school in Connecticut and regularly leads groups of students on morning jogs around Cambridge.

A walk along the River Cam to the nearby village of Grantchester for afternoon cream tea again proved popular with students. The warm weather and blue skies we’ve been having provide such a great setting for this classic British summer tradition. Back in Peterhouse, Bill, another one of our Deans, began the first of his famous juggling classes.

The highlight for all of us this evening was the fantastic student talent show. There was an amazing array of talents on display with musical, poetic, dance and many more performances! It was great to see so many students supporting their friends throughout the show and a congratulations to Nathan Caballero who was voted best in show with an original piece of slam poetry.
