Queen’s Gate in Scotland
Posted on 20 February 2018 by Miss Emily Acton-Edmiston
Following on from the success of last year’s alumnae trip to New York (see QG News Spring 2017 edition), during February half-term, Principal Mrs Kamaryc, Head of Sixth Form Dr Lee and External Relations Assistant Miss Acton-Edmiston, travelled to Scotland to visit Queen’s Gate Old Girls living and studying in Edinburgh and St Andrews. Whilst there, QG staff also toured round the universities and attended information sessions given by the Admissions departments, gaining useful advice about the application process and life at the institutions.
The trip was also a chance for the School to hold lunches for the Old Girls. This was a wonderful opportunity for staff and girls alike to connect and catch up. In Edinburgh, a very enjoyable Monday afternoon was spent with 11 Old Girls at The Outsider restaurant and in St Andrews the following day, although a smaller affair, the staff were delighted to be joined by Old Girl Isabel Steele at Mitchell’s Deli.
The two days spent in Scotland were both thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile, complete with bagpipes and a run along the beach in St Andrews! Thanks go to all the alumnae we connected with – remember to keep in touch!
