Fiona back at Cape for first time since 2003

Fiona Treseder and Morgan

Former Cape student Fiona Treseder took time out of her holiday in St Just to be interviewed for BBC School Report by Morgan (above right) and Esme. 

Fiona Treseder is an ex-student of Cape Cornwall secondary school. She left in July 2003 with the goal of traveling the world. A decade later, she has visited Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Borneo, Brunei, India, Nepal, Greece, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, France, Spain, Portugal, Madeira, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, USA, Italy, and South Africa. Out of all her visits Fiona said her most enjoyable was South Africa. She went in shark cages and caves. Her advice to people wanting to travel is ‘’Sort your financial situation. Stay safe and it is the best experience you’ll ever have!’’

During her time in school, Fiona’s favourite subject was P.E. She was taught by Miss Reynolds who pushed her to get in all the sport teams. Her favourite team was hockey. Her favourite teacher was also Miss Reynolds because she was encouraging in sport lessons. Fiona was always well behaved in school and always did her homework on time. 

She is currently on holiday down in Cornwall away from her home in south wales because her brother and his partner have recently had a baby girl. This is the first time she has been back to Cape Cornwall School since collecting her GCSE’s in 2003.

She was inspired to be a physiotherapist because of her interest in sport and people's well-being. When asked would she rather be a famous physiotherapist or a world reknowned traveller she said she would want to be a famous physiotherapist who travelled around the world to help people. Her future goals are to get a PHD.
