The first month of our new EC London Photography Competition has been a really great success and there were lots of exciting entries.
Assessing the photographs has been a very stimulating project and each photo has been carefully studied and evaluated. It wasn’t easy to narrow down the choices but in the end, two photos stood out as capturing both the spirit and the meaning of the competition.
On behalf of EC London I am delighted to announce that a winner and a runner up have now been chosen. The 1st prize winner will receive a free tour worth £50 and the 2nd winner will receive a £10 book token.
Winner of the first prize: Anton Karapuzov
Winner of the second prize: Hugo Maia
The theme of our next month’s competition is “EC STUDENT LIFE”. This can incorporate photographic moments capturing events as varied as experiences at the School, the classroom, fellow students and EC London social events or sightseeing.
We look forward to seeing lots more fabulous photographs.

Students enjoyed the last ‘candlelit dinner’ so much that we already have people asking when the next event is!
Once again the Café was transformed, with decorated tables, mood lighting and music. Diners were greeted with cocktails and treated to a variety of delicious aperitifs. The buzz of conversation was infectious, and as everybody relaxed we moved to the tables where supper was served.
Everybody was in a great mood when we finally tore ourselves away and headed for Pacha. It was a great start to a very successful Summer Party evening.
Summer is well underway and the social programme is getting very busy with lots of exciting events and things to do. Please look out for specific details on the Social Programme poster which will be put up in all the different EC School premises and which will be emailed to you every Friday.
Please keep the entries coming in for the new monthly photography competition, there are some great prizes to be won! Email them to email@example.com with the subject ‘July photo comp’
The first of the summer parties is next Friday the 23rd July. This will be a great event and the anticipation is growing. Please get your FREE tickets next week on Wednesday 21st July and Thursday 22nd July from Geoff in the EC Cafe.
The EC Cinema returns next week with the classic old favourite ‘The Goonies’ on Thursday 22nd July at 2:30
If you have any questions, ideas or just need some advice I’ll be in the EC Cafe on Fridays
I hope everyone on the the Bath and Stonehenge trip has a great time this weekend. They are really interesting places to visit.
Beautiful bright sunshine and blue skies greeted the EC London team as we woke up early on Sunday 27th June ready for our mystery marine adventure! We met at the Docklands Sailing Club at 10:00am, donned our life jackets and jumped aboard our respective dinghies for a fun-packed morning of learning how to sail. There was some concern regarding the lack of wind but luckily there was just enough to keep us moving, albeit slowly! Perfect conditions for some of us first-timers. After the sailing we had a delicious bbq lunch followed a trip to the pub to watch England play Germany in the World Cup. Sadly the day didn’t end quite as well as most of us had hoped but our German intern Stephanie was very happy! Thanks from all of us to Bernard for organising yet another excellent staff teambuilding event.

“All advice from EC London Job Club was very good. It was a difficult time to find a job in London because of the recession so I am happy I can find a job in a hotel.
The first two weeks I gave my CV to many, many places but I heard nothing. I also searched online. Finally I received positive news from the hotel.
You must understand that the salary is low and the tasks very basic. Don’t expect too much! It is very good for experience and for improving my English.
Afternoon lessons are the best for finding a job because many hotels need the breakfast staff in the mornings. I must wake up at 5 o’clock but then I can work six hours before the class.
My advice for other students looking for part-time work is keep trying and never give up!”
