6 October 2012 / HIGH SCHOOL FENCER TO REPRESENT TEAM GB IN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
If the team is successful those selected will take part in the World Championships in Columbia, next year. But, regardless of her performance in November's event, Teresa will not be accepting any more international competition invitations until after completing her A Level exams next summer.
Teresa's mum, Maria Norejko said: "We are so proud Teresa has been selected but understand her decision to spend the rest of this academic year concentrating on schoolwork to secure the best possible results in her exams. Once again, staff atTruro High School have been exemplary in their understanding and encouragement."
High School Headmistress and former British Olympian, Caroline Pascoe, said: "Teresa's fencing achievements have been outstanding and we are proud to give her all the support necessary to help balance the demands of both international competition and academic work. Even after she leaves the school we will follow her future fencing achievements with great interest."
