After last years hiatus, on Saturday 3 July, we were delighted to be able to celebrate our annual Prize Giving ceremony. This annual celebration of student achievement always takes place in the middle weekend of our St Dunstan’s Festival. In the spirit of this years theme, ‘Celebrating Courageous Curiosity’, we were able to work with the government guidance to find a way to offer our fantastic prize winners the opportunity to collect their awards, with loved ones in attendance to share in their achievements.
Not even the weather could dampen the mood, as our guests arrived at the Big Top tent on the Jubilee Ground, to the sights of our Art Exhibition and the sounds of our wonderful Jazz Ensemble. The breadth and scope of the prizes on offer always offers a wonderful insight into the diverse and varied educational experience that our community are fortunate to benefit from. Congratulations must go to all of the students in attendance who were quite rightly recognised for making the most of these experiences.
The main address was delivered by our Headmaster, who urged the prize winners to reflect on their experiences from the past 12 months. To have managed to achieve such great things in the face of such adversity will be a source of so many valuable lessons, and each student must ensure that they don’t let this opportunity for learning, growth and development pass them by. Our Head of School, Piotr delivered his final address, which focused on the impact the College values have had on him and his peers, before expressing his gratitude for the help and support they have received in their time at the College.
Congratulation again to all prize winners and their families. Enjoy the summer, come back refreshed and revitalised and apply all of the lessons that this year has taught you. If you do, we will no doubt see you again at the same time next year!
