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: email@example.com | 015394 46164
All money raised will be donated to Kendal First Responders and the Nepal Earthquake Appeal.
The first time my daughter and I visited the school she said to me “that is a happy school no question.” The scholastic achievements of the school are evident and an easy measure for a school to demonstrate. What is hard to quantify is the holistic development of a pupil at which, in my experience, Windermere School excels.
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.
