ISCA Visit Windsor and Runnymede
Today we concluded our wonderful ISCA journey in fittingly spectacular fashion, with a visit to the Queen’s most famous residence: Windsor Castle. We followed in the footsteps of Royalty as we marvelled at the beauty of St George’s Chapel, viewed her majesty’s gardens, and witnessed the changing of the guard. But that is not all! After releasing the children to explore the city of Windsor and to purchase their final souvenirs, we ventured down to the Thames where we embarked on a splendid 2 hour boat trip to Runnymede.
This of course is a very important place for English History, as it was the site where King John signed the Magna Carta 801 years ago. This laid down a set of laws that even the King had to answer to and thus giving the citizens of England new rights. At Runnymede a sense of duty fell upon the ISCA staff to return our noble ISCA students safely to Charterhouse whence packing could commence.
With the students all set for their return journeys tomorrow, our wonderful three weeks were reviewed in a final presentation with some prizes and emotional final farewells. Sadly, all great adventures must come to an end, but the memories and friendships created from ISCA 2016 shall live on!
A huge thank you to everyone that has been a part of this wonderful experience!
