Kirsty, as a prefect at Stanwell School, has always aimed to increase the extra-curricular activities at Stanwell in order to create a stronger community within the school, and encourage the enthusiastic attitude towards work and education of the pupils. After being strongly involved in a number of clubs within the school in the younger years, Kirsty then initiated a photography club for GCSE pupils, giving them the unique opportunity to take photos and develop them in the dark room, learning valuable skills which greatly aided their GCSE projects. Into A levels, Kirsty then set up a newspaper for her school, run by pupils for pupils. There was previously no opportunity for improving journalistic ability, or even encouraging writing outside the classroom. Consequently, Kirsty founded, supervised, edited and published a monthly newspaper, which then informed all pupils of current affairs both in school and in the wider world.
Kirsty's commitment to the school led to her being awarded the role of Deputy Head Girl, winning a cup for Services to the School. This was additionally in recognition of the voluntary help she gave to children in younger years in English and Maths classes, who needed one on one attention in order to maximise their learning ability.
Kirsty has also always been a strong character in her community, raising money constantly for charities, through sponsored runs, silences, and even cleaning school kitchens, all with determined leadership and enthusiasm.
