On Friday 24th June, we held our Key Stage 3 Prize Giving Ceremony. We were delighted to be able to host this in person, for the first time since 2019 and that parents and carers of our Year 10 students were in attendance.
Our esteemed Guest Speaker was past pupil and advanced Physiotherapist, Mr Enda Ginley who spoke to the students about his journey to the prestigious role he holds today within the medical field and about the importance of grabbing every opportunity that comes their way and also giving 100% to everything they do.
