A former head girl has returned to Dunottar School in Reigate to talk to pupils in a special assembly about her volunteering work for Whizz-Kidz, a charity which aims to help disabled children and young people across the UK.
Kate Clifford, who was head girl at Dunottar in 2012, heard about Whizz-Kidz when she saw disabled children competing in a Tough Mudder endurance event – this inspired her to volunteer her time.
The former Dunottar School head girl Kate said: “I felt so privileged to be part of Dunottar. Whizz-Kidz meets Dunottar’s mission statement of seeing the best in everyone.”
After leaving Dunottar with A-levels in drama, sociology and history, Kate gained a degree in drama at Exeter University before working in Canada for a year and then became a youth expedition leader in Fiji.
Headmaster Mark Tottman said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Kate back to Dunottar. She was delighted to see some familiar faces, and she commented on how Dunottar has now become fully co-educational in the time since she was here. It was an inspiring assembly for a very worthwhile cause.”
