Abbey College Cambridge Student of the Week Salita

Second year A Level student Salita Som from Cambodia was nominated for her ‘hardworking attitude as well as her cheerful and extremely helpful demeanour, She was a school ambassador at the beginning of term and has been a wonderful member of the tutor group: kind and helpful to everyone. She is always the first to volunteer. Yesterday she offered to do a presentation during the PDD session yesterday on the drug Thalidomide. She spoke beautifully and intelligently and set a good example on how to research and present. She is prepared to go ‘above and beyond’. Her PowerPoint was very well put together and her ideas will be put to good use within her Personal Statement.’

Abbey College Cambridge Student of the Week Jaden

First year A Level student Wang Ruiyu (Jaden) from China. ‘Not only has Jaden scored 100% in the first Topic Test, he is utterly devoted to his studies; he has attended multiple Cambridge University lectures (which he has then proceeded to tell me all about during lunch times…) and is always the first to volunteer a response in class. Further to this, he is a wonderful team player – both patient and generous with his peers who either do not possess his prior learning in the subject nor the level of English language to communicate their points as succinctly.’
