Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

AU­THOR Caro­line Plaisted was guest speaker at a school’s prize­giv­ing cer­e­mony.

Stu­dents at High­worth Girls’ Gram­mar School, Ash­ford, were pre­sented with their GCSE and A-level cer­tifi­cates, along with spe­cial sub­ject prizes.

Thirty-four stu­dents re­ceived GCSE prizes, while 37 stu­dents were recog­nised with A-level awards.

The cup for out­stand­ing achieve­ment went to Claire Wool­ger, who achieved four grade As at A-level af­ter over­com­ing a se­ri­ous ill­ness.

Guests heard that Claire in­volved her­self fully in school life and made a very worth­while con­tri­bu­tion to the sixth-form.

As­sis­tant head teacher Les­ley Don­ald said: “Caro­line Plaisted en­ter­tained the au­di­ence with her tales of her jour­ney to be­come an au­thor, giv­ing a very clear mes­sage that life will al­ways present chal­lenges and dis­ap­point­ments which must be over­come.”

She has writ­ten over 50 books and has worked in the House of Com­mons and in mag­a­zine pub­lish­ing as a writer and ed­i­tor.

She lives in Ap­ple­dore with her two chil­dren.
