Celebrating Success

Prize giving evenings
Prize Giving is an annual event for years 7 to 10.
In most cases awards are sponsored with a cup for academic achievement and a shield for endeavour.
In Years 7 and 8 prizes are awarded to a boy and a girl in each subject and category.
In Years 9 and 10 the award is either for a boy or a girl in each subject and category.
Each subject area nominates students for the awards.
There are additional awards for Outstanding Achievement, Community Service, Role models and Services to the School.
We are always looking for sponsors for our awards – please contact the School if you are able to help with this.

Year 11 prom
Year 11 students celebrate the end of their exams and school days with a prom. It is a chance for students to say their goodbyes and celebrate the end of the exams in style. Staff also attend the prom to celebrate with the students and to wish them all the best for the future.
