As one of my students, Gwendolen conjures up as a shy, loving, quiet, soft spoken and intelligent face in my recollections. A very bright student, always shone among the rest. The beautiful and the natural environment of the school brings back a lot of happy memories with my lovely students, and among them, I was certain about a few who would rise in their lives to dizzying heights. One of them was Gwendolen .The most admirable quality of Gwendolen was her clarity in her thoughts, in being logical, and her ability to connect seamlessly with her peers, juniors, seniors and all her teachers, and funnily this has never ever undermined her abhorrence to mathematics! Gwendolen can be compared to a cool summer breeze. I feel proud to be one of her teachers and wish her all the best in whatever she embarks upon and I am certain she would come out with flying colours.
