Preet Chandi Visit

 

We were honoured and delighted to welcome Preet Chandi, an Army officer who completed a solo expedition across Antarctica, to Foyle College today, when she inspired locals students through her achievements.

 

We were honoured and delighted to welcome Preet Chandi, an Army officer who completed a solo expedition across Antarctica, to Foyle College today, when she inspired locals students through her achievements.

 

Preet, from Derby, trekked 700 miles in 40 days, facing temperatures of -50C, an account she shared with pupils and staff from Foyle College, Lisneal College and Oakgrove Integrated College this morning.

 

After more than two years of completing half and full marathons and endurance training, Preet decided on her adventure. Of her expedition, she reflected that the lifetime achievement she gained far outweighs the week and half of pain, leaving students with a strong message that they should not allow others to discourage their dreams.

 

Foyle College pupils, staff and Board of Governors, Colonel Donald Bigger and Archdeacon Robert Miller, were equally engaged by Preet’s motivational message, and we sincerely thank her for visiting us as part of her schools’ tour.
