We were eagerly awaiting our new arrivals, as our students joined us throughout the day. Coming from all across the globe it was so exciting to hear a little bit more about the exciting places they’d all joined us from!

Once our arrivals had unpacked and been guided around their new home for the next few weeks some chose to explore their new home of Oxford for a few hours! We also got to welcome new arrivals at our drinks reception in the scenic Oxford castle, making a really great event for all to get to know each other!

After everyone had got to know each other a little our excited students then got to fill themselves with a BBQ on the rooftop chatting and socialising between burger bites!

Once everyone had eaten their fill our students were then introduced to our senior team with a talk from our Head of Community Shannon who promised we would give them the best summer of their lives, an optimistic yet achievable goal!

It was then time for our exciting icebreaker games led by our enthusiastic Activity Coordinators! Various games of name aerobics and human knot which meant everyone had the opportunity to meet each other by the end of the games. After a day jam packed full of activities and socializing our students finally headed back to their accommodation to learn a little bit more about their schedule for the rest of the week!
