Last month former pupil Catriona Oliver came to Preston Lodge High School’s Modern Studies department to give S1-S4 pupils an insight into the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves. Catriona spent two prlonged periods at the Tilinanu orphanage in Lilongwe, Malawi and gave pupils an inspiring account of her time there as she helped to care for, and educate the 34 girls who reside at Tilinanu. Such was the inspiration of Catriona’s account of her time there, that a number of pupils have since contacted her to enquire about one day visiting the orphanage in Malawi themselves. It was fantastic for Preston Lodge pupils to see a former pupil making such a difference in the global community, and has undoubtedly inspired many to reach such heights in the future. We hope to have Catriona back in the department in the near future!
