Despite the awkward dead air between the girls and us, the trip was brilliant, not only because of the famous tourist spots we visited, but also the things we learnt from mentors and teachers. Our mentor was a third year student in Cambridge University, who studied English Literature. Besides academic, he was also the captain of the football team in his college. That was why we had endless conversations about football. He was a fan of Crystal Palace, a team in the bottom half of the league, but is near his hometown Surrey. He shared his views as a local supporter, which was all different from ours, and taught us to be loyal to our favourite clubs. For me it is Chelsea.
The teachers in our daily English, History and Science classes were also friendly and humourous. Their teaching methods were superbly intriguing. I can still remember that in English lesson, we did a drama about families that had to separate during the Second World War; in History, we did a project about negotiating between countries after the war; and in science, we did a model of an island with 100% renewable energy. These interesting projects really helped us to remember everything we learnt, and now I still use the knowledge in my daily life, even though the tour was only for two short weeks.
As I had these wonderful memories in Cambridge in one of the happiest 14 days in my life, I am sure the current P.6 boys are enjoying their study tour in Cambridge very much!
