Last week ended with the official Year 10 Rewards Assembly. The assembly was a fantastic occasion designed to celebrate the achievements of the exceptional students within the year group.

Students were recognised by their Subject Teachers for a variety of reasons ranging from excellent coursework and consistent hard work in lessons to constantly displaying positive attitudes to learning. The nominations arrived in droves and it was clear to see Year 10 are getting things right.

The star prize was taken by Aaron Ku Fotsing in 10SMS, who won the Twelve Days of Christmas Competition prize draw by achieving a perfect 12 days of school in terms of attendance and behaviour and gaining and a positive comment from his teachers. Aaron managed to win an indoor skydiving experience for two where he chose his friend Mario Tomsen to go with him. Both boys were well deserved winners.

Each Form Tutor nominated three special students in their form who displayed Retribuam, Readiness and Responsibility so far this year, with an incredibly well deserving list of winners collecting prizes. Furthermore the year team added to these nominations with Ismailia and Ketsia.

Finally driving his way into a successful Year 11 was Rafael Matzinhe 10SAK who won a race car driving experience for his fantastic work in lessons.

Other students were praised for their excellent ATL scores and celebrated for displays of Resilience, Respect and Responsibility.

We are incredibly proud of them and cannot wait to see what they can achieve next.
