At St David’s we strive to give our pupils everything they need to succeed but they are the ones doing the hard work, they are the ones who achieve great things. It's a great honour for her and something I’m sure she will cherish.”

“All of our skiers have earned our utmost admiration. They have put in a lot of effort and exemplified the St David's College "never give up" attitude”
