Pupils were rewarded for their hard work throughout the final autumn term this week with special Award Assemblies held on the last day of term to celebrate their achievements.
Every year group was invited into their Year Award Assembly to receive certificates and prizes for 100% homework, progress scores, most improved, together with Head of Year and Headteacher Awards. The assemblies are an enjoyable part of each term for the school, enabling staff to celebrate their pupils’ great success.
Deputy Headteacher, Mr Botes said: ‘There have been some really significant improvements made by many pupils this year, but again I have been very impressed with our Year 7 and their numerous 100% Homework certificates together with some amazing Gold and Super Gold Progress Scores since September. Progress has been excellent and it will be fantastic for pupils who achieved bronze and silver to progress and achieve a higher grade at the next awards assembly in the New Year.’
The rewards assemblies are a chance to formally recognise the hard-work and high standards achieved by many of our pupils.’
Numerous Head of Year certificates were awarded together with the two nominated pupils receiving Headteacher Awards in recognition of their learning and achievements throughout the term. Learner of the Week award scrolls were also distributed to all Year groups.
Our Advent Appeal Raffle in support of the Salvation Army was also drawn at each assembly containing a numerous array of chocolate delights ranging from the first prize of a large ‘Chocolate Hamper’ complemented with five additional ‘Chocolate Gift Sets’ for each Year group that have tempted ticket purchases throughout Advent for the charity to raise, as it stands over £1,500 for the charity with additional donations to be added.
As always, the assemblies are an enjoyable part of each term for the school, enabling staff to celebrate their pupils’ hard work. Deputy Headteacher, Mr Dave Botes told all pupils in their assemblies to be very proud of their achievements and to return after the Christmas holiday to be committed to try and improve even further.’
During each assembly Headteacher Mr Hubbard congratulated all recipients receiving award certificates but also encouraged all pupils to give every effort to their future learning. Mr Hubbard stressed that although it had been a difficult year he has been very pleased with the numerous awards received and the outstanding learning commitment of many pupils throughout this term.
Each assembly also had a personal message to all the pupils in the form of a very creative video musical rendition of ‘Silent Night’. Many teaching and support staff volunteered their singing and instrumental musical talents to create this special Christmas gift to all our pupils – Corpus Christ ‘Silent Night’ (Produced by Mr Reilly and Mr Walton)
