Halloween Party 2017

Halloween Party 2017

On the spooky evening of November 4th, Townshend was transformed for the annual Halloween Party with scary displays and decorations and the \’fright walk\’ to the dining hall with seniors leaping and screaming as people climbed to the dining hall.

Ran by the seniors who devised music, refreshments and entertainment, the students came in all manner of costumes and make up. Special mention must go to the \’best outfit\’ which went to Anis \’Two-Face\’ Serikbayev. Good fun was had by all, and it was a nice start to the term.

Berlin Excursion 2017

Berlin Excursion 2017

Over the course of 11th-14th October 2017 history students of levels 2, 3 and 4 participated on a visit to Berlin to gain insight on some of the major events that occurred there mainly in the 20th century.

The students were able to gain valuable insight from experienced guides with knowledge and hands on experience of some of the key locales- most notably the House of the Wannsee Conference, 1936 Olympic stadium, Topography of Terror Museum, the Berlin Wall, the Reichstag building, the Treptower Park Soviet War memorial and Checkpoint Charlie

In addition to this they got some time to enjoy the cultural areas of Berlin such as Unter den Linden, Alexanderplatz, Charlottenburg and Friedrichstrasse.

Student behaviour was at it\’s usual high standard and the students enjoyed a break from the normality pf the classroom to take advantage of Townshend being so close to many cities in Europe, in the knowledge that this will open their minds and engage them in a new way.

Level 1 Camp

Level 1 Camp

Level 1 have just returned from an enjoyable camp where they spent 5 days team building, learning a variety of skills for survival, enjoying a pristine environment and bonding as a group. The highlights of the week included canoeing, rock climbing and riding mountain scooters. The week was especially helpful for new students to get to know their class mates and for the group as a whole to grow closer.

Welcome Party !

Welcome Party !

On the evening of Saturday 16th September, the senior of class hosted their first event for the students. The welcoming Party was themed on \’bad taste-crazy dress\’ and the students arrived in an eclectic mix of fashions, hats, hair dye and school uniforms.

The students partied in the Cabana room with snacks and drinks available and a small photo area for memorable snaps of the evening. With music, lighting and decorations provided for by seniors. New and old students socialised and enjoyed the company and a good time was had by all.

Level 4 Camp

Level 4 Camp

Level 4 students started their year rolling within a week they attended their camp near Straz Nad Nezarkou (near Trebon about 50 minutes from Townshend)

 

The students were thrust into a variety of team building, physical and intellectual challenges including boat building and sailing (although this turned out to be more like the Titanic sinking….) climbing 12m high trees, T shirt designing and late night hikes.

They also had deep and meaningful discussions with senior staff, and have many pictures that they will cherish in the future.

Most of all this camp united the class and highlighted their tremendous team spirit, and bodes so well for the academic year ahead!

Summer 2017 excursion to London

In the last week of the academic year, as the Cambridge exams finished we took some of Level 2 and 3 students on an excursion to the great city of London. Flying via Prague airport 8 of our inquisitive students took a 4 day excursion to experience many new sights and culture in one of Europe\’s great cities and enjoy learning in a very different method to the classroom.

Over the course of the 4 days the students were out for at least 10 hours a day using London\’s public transport network to get around and see many different museums and cultural sights to give as broad an excursion as possible. Uner the guide of native Mr Setchell; the students were able to visit (deep breath)

  • The British Museum
  • The Imperial War Museum
  • The Natural History Museum
  • Buckingham Palace
  • St James\’s Park
  • Trafalgar Square
  • Leicester Square (including M&M world and the largest Lego store in Europe)
  • Piccadilly Circus
  • Covent Gardens
  • The Tower of London
  • Tower Bridge
  • Millennium Bridge
  • St Paul\’s Cathedral
  • Big Ben
  • A River Cruise down the iconic River Thames
  • The Olympic Park and Queen Elizabeth Stadium
  • Shakespeare\’s Globe Theatre
  • Greenwich Observatory and Royal Park
  • and of course a journey up  the iconic London Eye!

The students took everything in their stride and behaved well and enjoyed all of these plus of course iconic food (Fish and chips!) tried terrible British accents and had smiles constantly, even when getting stuck in a lift (elevator) in the hotel and getting through London\’s tube (underground railway network). It was a great way to end the year and will certainly be an experience students can use in the future!
