We are delighted and proud to inform our readers of the amazing work that Louise Laing has been doing in the months since leaving Preston Lodge.
Louise was in S6 (2008-9) and in August she traveled to Hle Bee School in Myanmar (Burma), the link school of Forthview Primary (Pilton, Edinburgh) to teach English, for 5 months.
After a few very tricky days, Louise is now in her element, loving her work in the school and confidently managing to live independently in this fascinating town on the Thai-Burma border.
Last year the pupils of Preston Lodge raised a splendid amount of money for Burma Educational Scholarship Trust and for the school Louise is now teaching in – about £760.
