As part of the School’s Thursday Lecture series, we are delighted to welcome Amy Beeton to Windermere School for an ‘Inspirational Talk’ on Thursday 3 March at 7.15pm.
Amy Beeton is the only British woman alive to have attempted K2, the notorious ‘Savage Mountain’, and one of only a handful of British women to have reached the summit of Everest. Amy is an outstanding inspirational speaker and her passion for ice, rock and altitude has taken her around the world, from Alaska to the Andes, from the Caucasus to the Karakoram, the Himalayas and the Annapurnas on a wide range of expeditions. The qualities of determination, self-discipline, team spirit and optimism that have enabled Amy to survive and succeed in some of the most dangerous places on earth are as relevant at School or in the workplace as they are in the mountains.
Amy has the ability to motivate her audiences to identify their goals and find the confidence and commitment deep within themselves to turn their dreams into reality. Her unique blend of humour, warmth and gripping storytelling entertains, amazes and inspires, leaving her listeners re-energised and re-equipped to meet and overcome their own life challenges. Amy draws on her experiences in the mountains to show how the qualities needed in surviving life-or-death situations apply equally to overcoming major challenges in day-to-day life. She inspires and empowers people, from company chairmen to schoolchildren, to bring out the very best that is within them and make real changes in their lives.
Tickets: £5.00 Adults, £2.50 for under 18s. Reserve your tickets with the School Office: firstname.lastname@example.org | 015394 46164
All money raised will be donated to Kendal First Responders and the Nepal Earthquake Appeal.
Three of our four daughters have been boarders at the Senior School following our unexpected move to Hong Kong in 2012. One moved back to board at Windermere following two years in Hong Kong and our youngest can't wait to follow in her footsteps and return as an overseas boarder into Year 9. We cannot fault the standard of education and care which the girls have enjoyed throughout their Windermere journeys. In particular, we love the location - and the way in which the Lake District becomes part of the curriculum - and the international flavour of the Senior School.
Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
