Our house is named after two inspirational ladies named Marie Curie and Elizabeth Fry. Marie Curie was a Polish physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the only woman to win one in two fields. She was also the only person to win in multiple sciences and was also the first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris.
The second, Elizabeth Fry, was an English prison reformer, social reformer and was referred to as the ‘angel of prisons’. Elizabeth Fry was a major driving force behind new legislation to make the treatment of prisoners more humane and since 2001 has been depicted on the Bank of England £5 note.
Our House colour is pink
MS Therapy centre
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system (CNS) – the brain and spinal cord. MS is an autoimmune disease, where the immune system gets confused and instead of attacking an infection or virus it turns on itself and attacks nerve cells. The MS therapy centre in Jersey helps people on Jersey with MS by providing High Dose Oxygen Therapy and weekly meditation sessions, as well as having a very extensive range of information on all aspects of MS.
They are currently expanding to offer their services to help people with conditions other than MS, such as Parkinson's, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue etc. For more information visit http://www.jerseymstc.co.uk/
Breast Cancer Care
Breast cancer is a disease that affects the lives of many women and their families. Although, more women are surviving, more and more women are being diagnosed with this disease and every 45 minutes, another woman dies from breast cancer. Breast Cancer Research has an ambition that by 2050, every woman that gets diagnosed with breast cancer survives and this is why our fundraising is necessary. Breast Cancer Research focuses on four key areas: risk and prevention, early detection and diagnosis, treatment and secondary breast cancer.

Charlotte Pollard: Hi, I 'm Charlotte, I'm currently taking Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Geography for my A levels. After school I hope to go to University to study International Relations. I am very competitive, so would love for Curie Fry to win and make history this year. Despite this, it isn't winning that matters but also getting to know the incredible individuals that Lauren and myself have the honour of leading this year. I'm looking forward to meeting and working with as many of the house members as I can over the coming house year. Top of the Pops is my favourite house event due to the fantastic atmosphere it creates; with 12 dances, music booming and lights dazzling, it is always fiercely competitive. I've always loved sport, mostly any kind, but especially gymnastics. I like to play piano as and when I can and also get involved in other aspects of the College.
Lauren Smith: I am Lauren Smith and I am Curie Fry house captain this year. I am currently studying for my A levels in which I am studying Maths, Chemistry, Italian, Economics and Finance. This year as house captain, I hope to get everyone in Curie Fry involved in house in some way; through fundraising, organising or taking part in house events. Furthermore, I think a crucial part of house is fundraising and I hope that we, Curie Fry, can make as much money as possible for our amazing house charities. Finally, I hope that Curie Fry can make history this year and finally win cock cup!
