Nightingale 

The aim of Nightingale House is to use Florence Nightingale as an inspiration to be our BEST by following the our Goodwin gateway of listening with understanding and empathy – a trait that Florence Nightingale possessed in abundance. Nightingale’s characteristics of confidence, determination, integrity and compassion, alongside her belief that she could make a change can transcend time. By sharing and promoting these qualities we can work and think interdependently in order to be our BEST.

Our patron, Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), known as “The Lady with the Lamp”, was a British nurse and statistician. Her experiences as a nurse during the Crimean War were instrumental in developing better ventilation and sanitation and these were effectively the foundations of modern nursing. She established St. Thomas’ Hospital and the Nightingale Training School for Nurses in 1860 with the aim of transforming nursing and healthcare.

Head of House – Miss Landy

As Head of Nightingale House, I hope to lead by example and pride myself on being empathetic, approachable and adapting to new, and sometimes challenging situations.

I enjoy working with students at Goodwin and getting to know them as individuals. I am looking forward to this new challenge and working with the members of Nightingale House to raise as much money as possible for The British Heart Foundation.

Goodwin Gateways

Listening with understanding and empathy is one of the most important gateways. The world is shrinking and our young people will encounter others who are not from the same background or who hold the same values as them and they need to live and work alongside each other harmoniously.

Thinking interdependently. One mind can conceive amazing inventions, but just think what many minds working together can innovate. This is what thinking interdependently is about. Sometimes sharing thoughts and ideas can be daunting but as with any walk of life team work enables individual success and team achievement.

Nightingale House will support the British Heart Foundation charity who are a UK based charity that funds research related to heart and circulatory diseases and their risk factors. The British Heart Foundation is a charity close to my own heart as I lost both of my parents to heart-related conditions. I hope that through teamwork and collaboration we can raise awareness and vital funds for this important charity.
