The students staying at Queen’s College enjoyed another proactive day of building knowledge through learning and exploration. Completion of their morning lessons marked the halfway mark in the student’s class tuition and it is safe to say they have all come on leaps and bounds.
With academic commitments fulfilled, the students were divided into smaller groups to embark on the walking tour around the culturally rich city centre. Christ Church College appeared to be a particular favourite amongst the students after being informed that it was the set inspiration for Hogwarts School from the renowned Harry Potter series. Students were left wonderstruck after discovering that the Bodleian Library houses over 13 million books, a copy of every book ever published in the UK, giving it copyright status. The students marvelled at the Radcliffe Camera building, part of the Bodleian Library, for its unique circular shape.
Other students selected the scavenger hunt activity around the city centre; this provided an equally sizeable tour of Oxford, with a competitive edge. Students teamed up and followed clues around various landmarks in the city, racing each other to reach the final stop at the Ashmolean Museum for edible prizes.
