Glebelands School held their annual celebration evening on Tuesday 17th 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 Oliver Turner and Head Girl Hannah Mansfield, welcoming the guests. This was followed by a performance from the newly established school choir, Glebelands In Harmony.
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 125 commendations during the year and to the 53 students who had 100% attendance.
The Harry Watts memorial prize for humanity was awarded to Joanna Holmes, a Year 10 student who was nominated for the work she does with St. Johns Ambulance.
Headteacher Mrs Hutchinson said, “This has been a fantastic evening as everyone is here to recognise the hard work and achievements of our students. It is a joy to reward them for going that extra mile and pushing themselves to reach their personal best.”
Thanks were also given to the Glebelands Trust who donated the prizes, the staff, governors and the parents for encouraging their children to be the best they can be and for attending the Celebration Evening to show their support.
