Annual Presentation Day

Our Annual Presentation Day held on Monday 16 December, along with our end of year Celebration Assemblies held on Friday 13 December, were wonderful events for our students, staff and parents to celebrate and reflect on the fantastic achievements of our students throughout the year.

Friday’s Celebration Assemblies were led by each of our Year Advisers, Head Teachers and students. The more intimate setting allowed for the acknowledgement and recognition of every student, and their contributions to our school throughout 2019. Students received individualised packs containing their report, certificates and acknowledgments of their sporting, academic and broader school achievements. Chaired by volunteers from each year group, with individualised performances showcasing some of the wonderful talent each year group has to offer, our students respectfully engaged in their celebration, showing their appreciation and support for their peers and their Year Advisers.

Our Annual Presentation Day is the culmination of a successful school year and a wonderful celebration of success and achievement, where our school community formally recognises the outstanding academic, leadership and sporting achievements of students from all year groups. Attended by local dignitaries, parents, teachers and students, this was a wonderful way for us to celebrate the outstanding commitment and achievement of many of our talented students.  This year was again, a fantastic and respectful celebration and support by all of our students for their peers who have worked so hard to achieve their results.
