Ceremony celebrates individual achievement
05 October 2018
Last Friday, Senior School held its annual Awards Ceremony. In the presence of invited guests, the school celebrated the academic achievements of pupils in Years 7-10 during the year 2017 - 2018.
Prizes for Outstanding Academic Achievement were awarded to pupils who had performed particularly well in their end of year examinations.
Certificates for Achievement in Individual Subjects were awarded to pupils who had shown a considerable aptitude and sustained enthusiasm for particular subjects.
Certificates for Progress were given to those pupils who, as evidenced by the school database, had made the most progress during the course of the academic year.
Certificates for Effort were awarded on the basis of staff nomination to those pupils who staff felt had worked consistently hard during the whole year.
Although the main focus of the afternoon was, undoubtedly, a celebration of the many academic achievements of our pupils, we also took the opportunity afforded by the occasion to showcase and enjoy the wider talents of our students in a variety of musical and dance performances.
Keerat Bharj performed a beautiful vocal solo called ‘Far from the Home I Love’ which was followed by a lively dance performance from Miss Lawrence’s Dance Club called ‘The Greatest’. Leo Buxton then played Ludovico Einaudi’s soothing piano solo ‘Fairy-tale’ with the grand finale presented by the full cast from Diva Night singing ‘This is Me’ from the popular film ‘The Greatest Showman’.
Congratulations to all of the award winners and grateful thanks to all who contributed towards the staging of this event. We now look forward to celebrating the successes of this academic year.
