Cherie presents Awards at Rainham School for Girls

"I was so impressed that Cherie gave to each and every student warm and personal praise, which I know they will cherish. It was a night to remember."

Last month Cherie was invited to present Awards at the Annual Awards Evening of Rainham School for Girls in Kent.

She met the new Head and Assistant Head, girls, staff and parents at a reception prior to the event and then presented prizes in the School Hall. She gave a speech about women in the 20th Century emphasizing amongst other points that no one should give up on their ambition in life: everything is achievable.

Following the Ceremony she was joined by another small group of girls, parents and staff who wanted to ask her further questions about her life, career and views on various topics.

Ms Karen Roberts, Headteacher, said that she was proud of the achievements of the students and was honoured that Cherie had agreed to attend. Speaking to staff and governors afterwards she said, "I was so impressed that Cherie gave to each and every student warm and personal praise, which I know they will cherish. It was a night to remember."
