That was my first time at Kent College. And I think it was the best time of my life!!!!
Then my flight was starting, I thought: I must motivate myself!
WHY??? I thought it’s going hard in England (it wasn’t like this_).
So, the flight started and end after an hour. I couldn’t believe that I’m in
England for this time but then I met very nice people from Pilgrims and
they asked something like:
What’s your name? How are you? How was your flight? And so on and so
We had much fun there, at the airport. But after 15 minutes we were driving to Kent College for 2 hours !
At Kent College I met the staff and the other students. They were very nice to me but I was a little bit shy. We played some games to learn more about the other students.
At 07:30 the staff did wake up us and we had half an hour to get ready.
When we all were ready we were going for breakfast.
After that was ‘Morning Meeting’. There we had the ‘Phrase of the day’, the ‘Cocoa Metre’, ‘What’s that under the hat’, ‘The Pants’ and ‘The song of the day’. Everything was very funny. Sometimes, when we had competitions between the teams (THE OTHER SQUAD VS. CHEEKY JOKERS), we had ‘Points board’ ,too.
I’m a Junior so I was in Dan’s class. All the students had 3 lessons (1 lesson = 1 hour). The Junior lessons were funny. We played many games in our lessons but we learned the language English while we did the games. The eat there is very tasty. It was always OK for me what they cooked.
For breakfast they cooked eggs in so many ways and they gave us toast, cereals, fruits, and so on and so on. In the afternoon and in the evening they cooked pizza, spaghetti, potatoes and something else. They gave us vegetables in form from salad or they cooked it. It gave vegetarian eat ,too.
After our lunch we had options. There we did with the other students that we want to do. Here are some options: Zumba, Modern Art, Basketball, Sketching, Swimming, and so on and so on.
At 17 o’clock we had down time until 18 o’clock. At this time we could do something with the other students. We could play Pool Billiard or we could call our parents and friends. After the hour ‘Down time’ we had for 15 minutes ‘Spot’ before we are going for Supper to the canteen. Spot is a little competition between the teams.
Now we’re a the end of the day. So it’s time for …………………………………………
Sometimes was the evening activity a competition between THE OTHER SQUAD and CHEEKY JOKERS (Challenge Night, Quiz Night, Superhero Krypton Factor, Summer Fayre).
Sometimes they were for fun for the students (Casino, BOY VS. GIRL, Walk a story, Disco). You are doing the activity for yourself. You aren’t in your team or in your class, you are only a team with one person, with you! One day it was ‘Grand film day’. You were in your team and did a film to a song. In the evening you show it to the other team. After the two films the staff showed us their film. All the films were very funny_. At the end it gave awards for the best actor and actress or for the best Junior actor/actress and Senior actor/actress and so on and so on. Some days there weren’t the normally daily routine. On this days you had ‘Day activities’ (Leeds castle, Blue Water and London). When we were in Leeds castle we watched a show and were in a maze and we did more funny things_. In Blue Water and in London we were shopping. First we were in London in amuseum (a War museum). On the last evening it was ‘Staff Student Show’. That’s my favourite activity because you are creating the whole day a show with your class and in the evening you perform in front of your course (the staff and the students) and it’s very funny!!! After you had perform there were awards again! But not for your show, it was for a person.
