Saturday Activities – A New Student Perspective
I am new student at Concord College and I really like this school, especially Saturday activities. They were created to replace the opportunity of leaving the campus, due to the ongoing pandemic. Wide range of choice always ensures that I will find something I’ll like. Examples of these activities are: colour run, bingo, cinema and capture the flag. While participating in these activities thus far, I met a lot of new people and I relieved stress after Saturday morning tests, so I look forward to participating in more Saturday activities in the future.
Bell House is a very comfortable boarding residence. It has a small yard where some wooden tables are placed, which connects different bell-blocks (I am living in B-block). My neighbours (also students in B-block) are very nice and kind, as are the ‘house parents’. The kitchen is large, and it has a big TV which can be connected to the PlayStation or Nintendo, to keep us occupied outside of our studies.

Experiencing Concord’s Colour Run
When I arrived, I was greeted with kindness and I really enjoyed the experience. My favourite part of the race was getting powder thrown at me. Afterwards, I was very colourful – green, pink, purple, orange! It was very fun and I enjoyed it very much. I definitely want to do it again!

Despite the struggle of year-group bubbles and other restrictions, the teachers managed to get the colour run to go ahead. I ran around Hall Meadow with some of my friends and we all had a great time. On our first lap, we did not get much colour on our tops, so we did a second lap to make our tops as colourful as possible. Thanks to the staff and students for making it a wonderful afternoon that we all enjoyed!
