Louise Laing (S6:2008-9) in Thai/Burma border school.

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 Laing in Burma

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.
