Our Prize Day took place on the afternoon of Friday 13th September, and we thank our guest speaker, pupils, former pupils, family and friends for making it such a special occasion.

Our Head Boy and Head Girl gave a warm welcome to everyone, with our Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl leading us in an opening prayer.
We sang with gusto "Guide me, O thou great Jehovah" and enjoyed a musical performance from our excellent school band, led by Mrs Thompson.
Mrs Allen, Principal, added a further welco...me, highlighting the number of former staff who were there as an illustration of the bonds that we have in school. She read a poem to further illustrate the bonds between parent and child, drawing parallels with school life and how we want our pupils to contribute to society beyond their time with us. Mrs Allen drew attention to the new vision and values that we have in school, and how the values of Respect, Commitment and Excellence are to take us through life. Our high achieving pupils were given credit for their hard work and some of the highlights of the school year were remembered.
Our guest speaker, Mr Barry Hetherington MEng (former pupil and now eSourcing Delivery Manager for Lloyds Banking Group), echoed these values and added that his time at our school as a pupil was a time of discovery as he learned the value of hard work and the value of contributing to extra-curricular activities, all of which helped him in the wider community. He left us with many precepts for life: "Respect will help you through life, be nice", "Work hard and you'll achieve it." and "Don't be afraid to try new things, learn something new every day."

Our pupils then took to the stage and were applauded as they each received their awards. It was a joy to see so many rewarded for their hard work and efforts, both in school and in other activities.  Basil Bayne, from Harper Adams University, presented Agriculture teacher Mrs McNeary with a fantastic new award. Lauren Ryans, Yr13, was honoured to be the first recipient. Our guest speaker Barry Hetherington, is pictured with academic award winners, and Mr Moore, Year Teacher is reunited with some of the class of 2019!
Sam Robb, Jamie Stewart, Nathan Copeland and Aimee Neal all received County and International recognition for their roles in football: U18 attacker, Super Cup Co Fermanagh, U16/17 Goal keeper and U15 female defender.

As Mr Clarke, Vice-Principal, drew proceedings to a close, there was an air of jubilation as memories were captured in photographs and friendships were rekindled.

Well done to all our award winners.
