Hayley brought tears to everyone’s eyes

Former Miss Queen’s College (QC) Hayley Laurayne is proving that academics and extracurricular activities can go hand in hand.

Hayley is one of the 15 QC students to be awarded Barbados Scholarships on the strength of her performance in the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE), where she obtained all grade ones in Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Caribbean Studies and Communication Studies.

Hayley Laurayne all smiles as she reveals in her academic success.

She also led the school’s environmental club and the events committee for the 2017 graduating class, and is a grade 8 dancer at the Louis Woodbine Dance Academy.

News of her success brought tears to everyone’s eyes, even her dad in Trinidad.

“I only found out the news when I got my results and it was unreal really. Everyone was crying and I was in shock for the [entire] night”, she told Barbados TODAY.

“My dad lives in Trinidad, so when I called him on Facetime he was crying all over the place.”

Hayley will travel to the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom where she will pursue an undergraduate degree in medicine, with her eyes on becoming a surgeon later.
