“The Summer School has been a fantastic opportunity to expand my knowledge of the classical world in a very welcoming and relaxed environment, allowing me to learn about topics that I haven’t previously encountered.” Bursary Recipient 2018
“I recommend applying for a bursary and going to the summer school with all my soul, it was both intellectually enlightening and enormous fun.” Bursary Recipient 2018
“What I loved the most about my time there was meeting many people my age who shared my love for Classics. The teachers and students alike all believed in the importance of studying Classics and also the fun to be had in it. And that is what I will take away from the summer school. There is so much to learn from these ancient civilisations. They have so much to tell us. I feel this summer school helped me to listen.” Bursary Recipient 2018
CLASSICS SUMMER SCHOOL STUDENT BURSARIES 2018
In 2018, the Association asked applicants to respond to the following question:
“I CANNOT TEACH ANYBODY ANYTHING. I CAN ONLY MAKE THEM THINK.” SOCRATES. WHAT DOES STUDYING CLASSICS MAKE YOU THINK?”
Bursaries were awarded to students, who in the opinion of the committee, answered 2018’s extended question in the most interesting and apt manner, and whose financial and/or personal circumstances affect their chances of attending the Summer School.
This year, thanks to the fundraising events of our members who helped the raffle reach over £1200, there were six successful recipients of full and partial bursaries: Jonathan Wilson, Daniel Hubbard, Ronnais Lloyd, Casey MacDonald and Helen Byrne of Runshaw College and Lachlan Rurlander of Lancaster Royal Grammar School. All the students thoroughly enjoyed their time at Repton and have written about their experience in a series of short Reports, which we hope you enjoy reading:
