Students from Years 10 - 13, their parents and teachers enjoyed a wonderful morning of celebration at Senior Prize-Giving on Saturday.

Guest of Honour, Professor Julia Downing, leading international palliative care consultant and Walthamstow Hall old girl, gave an inspiring speech in which she recalled how her days at Wally Hall had shaped her career in nursing. Professor Downing left students with 3 very wise pieces of advice which she has learnt along the way: think big; don't be afraid to try new things and everyone can make a difference. Julia ended her speech with a saying she has learnt from her many years working in Uganda, "If you think you are too small to make a difference go to bed with a mosquito!"
