INTERNATIONALISM Adaptable international students embrace challenges

It’s been another year of interruptions for international students who have relocated to attend Christ’s College.

However, the boys have taken the Covid-19 lockdown, the online learning, and all the changes in their stride. International Student Manager Paul McCarthy says he is proud of the way in which the students have met the challenges. “They’ve been incredibly resilient and flexible and I’m proud of them all,” he says. “In spite of everything they’ve remained very positive and keen to enjoy all the academic, sporting, co-curricular and social aspects of College life. I feel they have embraced the changes and restrictions imposed on them really well. We've all bonded together as a group and engaged in many activities, trips and functions together. It’s been important to try and create a home away in the absence of one, for the boys.”
