Week 5 photos on The Zone now!
The first of our final two weeks commenced with the usual house parties on Monday night to welcome new students onto the courses. Then it was full steam ahead for the students of Street campus as they prepared for their moment in the spotlight on Tuesday evening, in Millfield’s version of the hit TV show, The Voice. Our singers had to impress the judges with their vocal talents, until there were only two left who were to perform in the final which was to take place on Friday evening during the Millfield Extravaganza. The finalists, Ksenia and the Bromigos (a talented trio consisting of vocals, violin and piano/guitar) then had two days to prep for their big moment at the Extravaganza.
Early on in the week Glastonbury campus had a colour run, which is pretty much how it sounds. With their white Millfield t-shirts on, the students had a run around campus, with staff members throwing different coloured paints at them to cover their t-shirts in a multitude of colours – it really did make for some great photos!
On Thursday we had our next multi-campus event, International Night. It was great to see students from Glastonbury and Street getting the opportunity to show off their native clothing and they also got the chance to perform dances and songs from their individual countries. We also had ‘street food’ stalls covering lots of different styles of foods from different countries, it was great for everyone to try foods that they may not have had before.
Back to Friday and the Millfield Extravaganza. Providing one of the best events of the summer, students and staff all took to the stage to perform a variety of acts for the audience, with the teaching, operations, activities and pastoral teams all working hard to provide some funny moments. We also had performances from Academy Dance and Academy Rock, before the final of The Voice commenced. Ksenia and the Bromigos both performed fantastically, but there could only be one winner… congratulations to Ksenia!
The weekend brought the last of our four weekend excursions, the Oxford Weekend, which included a museum visit, river punting, sightseeing and shopping.
