Rachael Hopper - 2000-2002
Despite spending just two years at Kellett, Rachael cherishes the moments to this day. We asked Rachael to share her top three memories of her life at Kellett with us. Here is what she had to say;
"Going to Beijing on a school trip and eating Peking duck for the first time. We learnt all about the dynasties and came back and did a big ‘Chinese Evening,’ which was full of fan dances and a journey through the different dynasties."
"Going on school camp in P6 and having to put up a tent by ourselves (unsuccessful) and cook dinner for ourselves (successful!). All the other camps chose complicated meals but we chose pasta and tomato sauce and ended up feeding most of the other friends – pasta and tomato sauce is still a trusty meal even now, although I have perfected it since!"
"We had a Harry Potter day at the school and the whole school was turned into a Hogwarts style school and we made our own cloaks and wands. Such an amazing day and felt like magic was really in the air! Still have my Book of Spells that I bought on the day! Really enjoyed all the themed days they used to do – we had a World day where every classroom was a certain country and all the classrooms were decorated with the corresponding countries decorations!"
Rachael now enjoys a life filled with creativity and sport, knitting and collecting vintage clothes as well asskiing, swimming and playing netball and hockey. Some hobbies are also becoming a potential career for Rachael, intertwining her obsession with period drama costumes into her degree in Textile Design. Rachael also had the unique opportunity to work on the costumes for the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony!
