Kind Words from Students

Although I was admittedly daunted by the prospect of the group tasks, they were incredibly valuable at immersing us in the culture and fostering cooperation within the group. Any shyness quickly evaporates when you’re tasked with acting out running from an erupting Vesuvius, believe me! I would definitely adopt similar tasks if I were to organise my own trip 

Adrian Mc Mahon

Staying at the Villa Vergiliana has made this trip a completely immersive experience of culture. It is situated in a tranquil location where there is evidence of past Roman life at every turn, such as the garden which is currently being excavated. For me, this was essential in complementing the sites we visited as it consistently provided us with a more traditional experience and a better understanding of the rural life of the Romans.

The trip made me come out of my comfort zone- writing poetry or painting frescoes, as I originally imagined, was just a means of learning how to teach my pupils and to make the learning of the Classical world more enjoyable for children of different abilities and inclinations. However, I noticed that although I am willing to give children the chance to experiment and build their confidence on a daily basis, I am not as kind to myself as perhaps I should be.
