Isla Newman-Smith (Year 7)
Isla was lucky enough to go this week to the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, presented by a former Presdales student and mathematician, Dr Hannah Fry. Isla really enjoyed it, learning a lot about maths and how TV programmes are made. She was even chosen to go up to the front and take part in an experiment, so you should be able to spot her on TV when the programme is aired! Isla also managed to grab a quick photo at the end with Hannah who was thrilled to hear that Isla is a Presdales girl too – they had a chat about maths teachers!
After 7 years of training Zoe Van Maanenberg (Year 10) successfully achieved her 1st Dan (Black Belt) Karate yesterday. She has shown amazing resilience to obtain this and achieve it this weekend as the next grading would have clashed with her GCSE’s so she was determined to get it before then! Huge congratulations Zoe, this is amazing!
