Three recent leavers visit

We were delighted to welcome back three of our most recent OQs during the first half of the Spring Term.

Ian Wong (2014-16), Marco Young (2010-16) and Trevor Lau (2013-15) are all from Hong Kong but have stayed on in England to study at university.

Ian is taking Law and Criminology at Keele, Marco is taking Biomedical Science at Essex and Trevor is taking Economics at Warwick.

Ian was heavily involved in MUN (Model United Nations) while here and is pursuing that interest at unversity.

Away from the classroom, Marco enjoyed rugby and basketball while Trevor is a keen football fan and reached the final of a national quiz competition while at Queen's.

Back from Hong Kong

Two OQs from Hong Kong enojyed coming back to Queen's.

Elaine Law (1995-1997) and her brother Jackie Law (1996- 2001) were on a holiday to England with their parents and Jackie's girlfriend.

Jackie said: "From the outside, it looks the same but when you look at the detail, it has changed quite a lot. I had a very happy time at Queen's."

Elaine added: "There are a lot of new buildings."

Although their boarding houses had changed considerably, both of them were able to point out exactly where they slept and Elaine was delighted to meet the laundry lady from her school days.

Their mum, Grace, said the family chose Queen's after it was recommended by a close friend. "We were very pleased with their time here."

Amy enjoying successful career

OQ Amy Portman, who came back to Queen’s in January, is forging a successful career in event management.

Amy, 25, left Queen’s in 2010 and went to the University of Gloucestershire where she took a four-year Events Management degree, resulting in a 2:1.

She then joined Manor By The Lake - an exclusive privately-owned, multi-functional venue in Cheltenham - as a Weddings Consultant before being promoted to Corporate Events Manager.

Amy is moving back to the Taunton area this year but is retaining her role at Manor By the Lake.
