Studio Cambridge’s 60th birthday party, held at the school in Cambridge on April 1st, was great fun. Along with some 200 current students, staff and teachers, we were happy to welcome former staff members and many of our partners from around the region who make our work possible: Cambridge University colleges (where we run some of our summer programmes), tour companies, taxi and bus companies, insurance brokers, printers, even punters (from the river Cam).
Refreshments included typical English birthday party fare, such as scones with jam and cream and a delicious Studio Cambridge logo-ed cake from the famous Fitzbillies Bakery.
Managing Director Malcolm Mottram thanked everyone for coming, and asked us all to think of the 200,000 students who have studied English at Studio Cambridge over the years. They have gone home with good lifelong memories of the UK and of Cambridge, they have learnedsomething of our language and culture, and taught us some of theirs, and they have made friends that often last a lifetime.
Finally, Operations Director Richard Mountford led everyone in singing Happy Birthday (twice), the cake was cut, the candles blown out, the party was enjoyed by all and everyone went home (or back to work).
