Glebelands School held their annual celebration evening on Wednesday 13th July. The evening was attended by over 300 parents, staff and governors all there to support the students that had been nominated for a prize this year. The evening opened with a speech from the Head Boy Lewis Keen and Deputy Head Boy Will Mercer, welcoming the guests. This was followed by a musical item by violinist Madeline Pickering.
Prizes were then awarded in each subject to the highest achieving student in the year group and the student making the greatest effort over the past academic year. Prizes were also awarded to those students who had made the greatest contribution to their tutor group, had received over 140 commendations during the year and to the 51 students who had 100% attendance.
The Harry Watts memorial prize for humanity was awarded to Max Thrower who was nominated for his fund raising work with the Scouts and the local community. He has worked with younger students coaching swimming and has recently raised money to fund an expedition to Nepal where he was involved with building and development work.
Headteacher Mrs Hutchinson said, “The aim of this evening is for staff, students and parents to join together and celebrate the achievements of students across the school. Everyone is here to recognise the hard work and enthusiasm of our students. At Glebelands we encourage every learner to strive for their personal best. It is a joy to reward the students here today for going that extra mile and pushing themselves to reach their potential.”
Thanks were also given to the Glebelands Trust who donated the prizes, the staff and governors for all their work and the parents for encouraging their children to be the best they can be and for attending the Celebration Evening to show their support.
