Dear Families of the Cambridge Tradition:
Our last coach just departed for London Heathrow Airport. Jesus College has gone oddly silent. The happy shouts and cries of teenagers have been replaced by the soughing wind and the plaintive chimes of the chapel.
Heavy bags and heavy hearts began to depart through the breezeway of the Boatie Arch this morning at 3 am. Cool temperatures and a steady rain throughout the day seemed to mirror the mood of the day. After noon, however, the East Anglian sky turned blue and a bright sun reminded all of us of what a spectacular month it has been. In the last few days we have enjoyed several culminating projects and showcases, including a sleek and incredible performance of Hamlet, an art gallery, a wonderful final formal banquet, closing ceremony and ball, and even a student Miley Cyrus flash mob.
The students have left, but the bright memories remain. Thank you for sending us such incredible scholars, intellects, and people. Please see our blog for our end-of-program slideshow; final celebrations. Coming soon. In the interim, please encourage your children to keep in touch; they created a fantastic Tradition.
