Wycherley!... my guiding force

I had graduated from Wycherley only a few months ago and fond memories spent in this fine institution remain fresh in my mind. I have spent ten years at Wycherley and my path to adulthood had been both enjoyable and challenging.

It was during my earlier years when the strict discipline enforced by teachers had enabled me to develop consistent work habits and an efficient mind-set, both of which proved to be useful tools when the time came to face the biggest challenges in my student career-the O-level and A-level examinations. Such was a time when many sleepless nights were spent scribbling down notes and weekend afternoons were spent completing past papers and when self-discipline was an absolute necessity in fulfilling my ambitions.

It was at this point in time when many of the teachers' superior experience began to take form, syllabuses were finished early and revision begun many months before the examinations, giving us a surplus of time to clear doubts and become completely familiar with our academic material.
Contrary to my description above, Wycherley was never just about studies and hard work, Reminiscing about those crowded Chess Competitions, Quiz Programmes, Sports Meets, Society activities and many social events never fail to bring smiles to my face. Numerous societies and events provided me with a wealth of opportunities to expand upon my interests and develop teamwork and leadership skills that were valued by university selectors and would undoubtedly aid me in my future endeavours.

Many of my classmates have already begun to walk their separate paths in life, be it Medicine, Engineering, Computing, Economics or Science I have no doubt that it would be our memories of Wycherley that would bind us together. I am currently awaiting entry into the University of Manchester in the UK to study Medicine and I simply cannot express in words enough to convey my gratitude to Wycherley for guiding me to where I am today.

On behalf of the Class of 2010, I would like to thank all of those who have helped us overcome the obstacles in our path. I would like to thank all the teachers, the Principal Mr.Kingsley Jayasinghe, and everybody else who have made an impact on our lives and have put us on the path to our hopes and dreams for the near future. They have given us so much. There is no way to repay them. We need to always keep the name of Wycherley burning bright - Wycherley! We will take your name far and wide.
