Katherine Gray (Class of 2007)

Katherine Gray (Head girl 2007) was the guest speaker at Founders' Day on Saturday 12 August.

In her speech Katherine referred to knowing yourself and what you stand for. She challenged people to find their value and reminded students that Somerset College allows them to be in a space where they can try different things, find out what they like and dislike and foster their talents. She encouraged students to use what is available to them to help them when they go into the world. Katherine challenged us to be true to ourselves because we live in a world where we can be very focused on other people and being like other people. In Katherine’s words, “You will face obstacles and experience failure but never to be afraid to pick yourself up and move forward.” “You have to take responsibility for your choices, that will take you where you want to go – live with passion, with drive.”
