Eight of our students received their Gold Awards on a beautiful day in May in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.  Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne spoke to the participants about their award and commented on their achievements.  The guest speaker was Bonita Norris, the youngest, female, British climber to climb Everest.  Bonita presented the certificates and gave an impassioned speech about what makes her climb mountains.
