Last night for our penultimate evening we hosted CAE Blind Date! Tonight, students who won the dating competition will be served their very own evening dinner to celebrate. Students are now looking forward to the final goodbye disco tonight.
At CAE, students have a varied course of English lessons over the two weeks. As well as English language in the morning, students are given excursion classes to prepare and learn from the trips on offer from Princess Helena. Students also have the choice from eight elective classes, allowing them to develop skill based English. This week students chose from Poetry, Film Making, Advertising, Debate, Photography, Photo Story, Painting and Drama. Every student creates a portfolio showcasing their English work over the two weeks here. However, this afternoon we held a final presentation for all students and teachers so students could showcase their elective creations!
Students had the choice of art, tennis, reading and table tennis this afternoon for their penultimate day at CAE Princess Helena College. Have a look at the photos below!
For their two weeks at PHC, students are divided into six different houses for evening activities so they have a chance to mix with students from outside their classes and usual social groups. Last night we hosted the ultimate house competition with one member from each house competing in one activity. These included the After Eight challenge, fluffy bunnies, longest handstand and dizzy waiter to name a few! Tommorow the winning house from the whole two weeks will be announced at our final presentation.

Here’s two videos from our trip to London. The students jump outside Horse Guard’s Parade, and sing from the streets outside Buckingham Palace.

Yesterday we all enjoyed a busy day in London in the sun. Students started the day with a museum visit and had the choice of visiting the Victoria and Albert Art Museum, Natural History Museum or Science Museum. We then walked through Hyde Park for a picnic, before having some shopping time at the famous Oxford Street. In the afternoon, students were given a walking tour around Buckingham Palace, Downing Street and Trafalgar Square. After all having dinner at a restaurant on the Strand together, we walked down by the River Thames to see the London Eye and Big Ben before getting the bus back to Princess Helena. A day to remember for all!
During the two weeks, students have three excursions to local English towns and cities. This intake, we have visited Ely, Cambridge and London.
