New Video: St Luke’s Trip to London – 11 September 2011

Back in August, during the school summer holidays, St Luke’s enjoyed a trip to London, where participants explored the British Library, stood for a photograph under Paul Day’s famous The Meeting Place sculpture at St Pancras International, and took a tour of St Paul’s Cathedral from the man who designed it, Sir Christopher Wren. I’ve just finished editing the video from that trip (don’t worry, I haven’t been working on it solidly since the summer), and it’s now available to view online by clicking here.

Family Walk in Chinnor – 23 April 2011

To give me and Mum a break from my revision, we drove to Oxfordshire, parked the car, and walked to the Chinnor train station. The weather (having been glorious all week) continued to hold, and I managed to get some nice photos of our afternoon.
