Amy Migunda

Amy Large

17 years old, attending St. Andrew's Senior School, Turi. Amy was awarded a Beacon Scholarship in June, 2015.

Following on from her excellent IGCSE results, Amy has enjoyed the challenge and in-depth subject content of AS level. She participates well in class, is focused and achieved all her targets for effort and attainment; she is on course to achieve at least 3 out of 4 As in her AS level exams. At Speech Day, she was awarded the Year 12 Attainment Award.

Amy achieved Full Colours in U19 Netball, Swimming and Cross Country and Half Colours in Athletics, and represented her school in these sports. She was awarded Grade 7 LAMDA Speaking Verse and Prose, with Distinction, and has taken Grade 7 LAMDA in Musical Theatre. She is working towards Grade 4 Guitar and sings in the school choir. She applied for, and got, a place in the Round Square Committee, and was involved with the planning and organisation of St Andrew’s Day and International Night celebrations. She formed study groups with other students in her subjects, took on a leadership role at a new medical club for younger pupils, and helped devise a new school day-plan.

Amy used her position, as leader of her service group, as an opportunity to continue teaching drama and creativity to the school where she did her summer project. The group came up with ideas, and she oversaw a weekly plan, which led to a performance to their school by the Year 5 pupils, showcasing what they had learnt.

Amy's father works in marketing, and her mother is between jobs.
