Mr Webster, Assistant Principal:  Maymunah Bashir (7KSM) (pictured opposite) was invited to a Year 11 assembly to talk to students about her experiences so far in Year 7. She spoke confidently about her love for the Academy and her dedication to her studies. Maymunah outlined to Year 11 that nothing should stand in their way to succeed; she has not let her visual impairment stop her from achieving her goals.

Maymunah received a resounding ovation from the Year 11 students and accompanying staff. She is an inspiration to us all and I hope that Year 11 will now feel able to achieve their goals, no matter what obstacles they encounter.

Maymunah wrote:  “My assembly was all about motivation.  When I began I felt a little nervous but also quite excited.  It was all worth it because everyone really enjoyed it.”
