The strong family ties that exist between Kent College Dubai and Kent College Canterbury were underlined by the visit of a former KCC pupil to Dubai last week.
Lucie Bourne was Head Girl at Kent College Canterbury in 2011-12, and went on to study Bio-Veterinary Science at the Royal Veterinary College in London. Many parents in the Kent College Dubai community will know her mum, Claire, who is PA to the Principal. Claire was delighted to show Lucie and her other two daughters, Esme and Millie, around the school. Lucie commented that despite the school being in the somewhat warmer climate of Dubai, it felt very like Canterbury in many other respects. As a word of advice to the pupils at KCD she added: "whatever you enjoy, be it sports, academics, arts – grab the opportunity that a Kent College education can give you."
Everyone at Kent College Dubai wishes Lucie all the best as she flies back to the UK to embark on her PhD.
