Sixth Form student Lucy Jackson was recently presented with the Dorothy Lester Travel Scholarship at an assembly.
 
The travel scholarship, presented to Lucy by Chairman of the BGSG Old Girls' Association, Diana Robinson, is awarded to a Sixth Form student, or group of students, every year who propose to use initiative and enterprise in planning to travel somewhere to do something of educational value.
 
The judges expect the application to include a plan, preferably, though not necessarily to travel abroad but to fulfil and interesting, worthwhile purpose which is of broad educational value.
 
This summer, Lucy will spend three weeks at the Himalaya in India with the British Exploring Society.
 
The challenge will be dealing with altitude and extreme temperature ranges. Lucy will spend around three weeks at around 4,800m. This is as high as 26 London Eye’s or half way to the top of Mount Everest.
 
The scholarship is awarded each year in memory of Miss Dorothy Lester, who was a much loved and respected Headmistress from 1954 to 1979.
 
Miss Lester loved to travel and always believed in its value.
