Olivia Inspires Bournemouth School For Girls

Alistair Brien

Olivia’s Headteacher at Bournemouth School for Girls

We will always remember Olivia with enormous pride and, yes, affection.

She was always in the thick of school life.

She really came to my attention first though when I went to see her on her work experience in Year 10 whilst working at the Fawley oil refinery.

There she gave a presentation on what she had done and learnt with a confidence and poise beyond her years.

In the sixth form she was, therefore, a clear candidate for the role of Head Girl. As Head Girl, she was a credit both to herself, her parents and her school.

Always calm, smart and beautifully mannered she was a model student in every way and an inspiration to both her peers and younger pupils.

She was a young woman who appeared to have everything going for her. Even her fellow students recognised this.

Olivia certainly lived her life to the full, excelling in so many areas and always being the best she could possibly be.

Amidst all these talents and accolades, however, she was simply a good and nice person to know. Concerned for others, hard working, loyal and a friend to all.

We cannot begin to comprehend how such a short life with so much potential can be taken from us so quickly and without warning.
