Alumnae returns to share her story

Wednesday 16th May 2018

On Wednesday 2 May we were joined by Louise Gillman-Wells, a member of the Queen Anne’s School Alumnae, who addressed the school as part of the Well Being programme. She gave a presentation about her experience volunteering abroad, both as a Safari Tour Guide in the South African Bush and as a Camp Manager for Raleigh International (a sustainable development charity).

“Travelling has allowed me to put things into perspective, by being able to look at things differently. I have gained the motivation to complete my BSc in Biosciences in the hopes that my degree could help me address the social, environmental and developmental issues I’ve witnessed during my travels.”

Louise also felt that Queen Anne’s School had given her the much-needed confidence by developing her in her younger years.

“The foundations laid, due to the supportive and nurturing environment of the school were some of the key factors that helped me feel confident in deciding to travel abroad.”

After her speech, some of the girls approached Louise to ask some questions about Raleigh International and completing volunteer work abroad. Deputy Head girl, Rebecca H (U6), found Louise’s talk incredibly insightful and by “Seeing Louise push herself and go outside of her comfort zone is something that I wish to adopt during my gap year”.

Overall, the girls felt that Louise’s talk was inspirational, encouraging them to look forward and take on different opportunities that will enhance their skillset.
