Headteacher pays tribute to Beaconsfield pupil
A HEADTEACHER has paid tribute to a Beaconsfield pupil who was killed in a road accident in South Africa.
Skye Wilsnagh, aged 17, died on Wednesday, August 21- the day before she was going to receive her GCSE results.
Last Monday a memorial service was held at St Teresa's Catholic Church in Warwick Road, Beaconsfield.
Skye went to The Beaconsfield School and was in South Africa visiting her grandmother, with her twin sister, Courtney, when the accident happened.
Headteacher John Fletcher said: "Skye was an amazing young lady who had immense potential. Since joining the school Skye has been an inspiration to all students she came into contact with.
"Her leadership skills and ability to motivate people was self-evident in her role as a prefect, she gave of her time freely in order to ensure that she could help others to reach their full potential.
"Her determination to succeed was clear for all to see, she had achieved good GCSE results to enable her to study her chosen A levels. Skye will be sadly missed by all who knew her."
The school is planning to remember Skye in a permanent way by creating an award in her name which will be awarded annually at the school's awards evening in the summer.
Skye was a volunteer at St Teresa's Church where she raised money for Sparkles, a charity supporting children with Down's Syndrome.
