The Class of 2020 and their parents and teachers were invited to an online Graduation Ceremony tonight. It was lovely to see them all again for this special and very different event. The school was delighted that our former Chaplain, Emma Rothwell could lead the service and that Bishop Pat Storey gave such a beautiful blessing.
The ceremony started with a look at their photos from when they were in Form 1. Their Year Head, Miss Coleman and Head Boy, Henry read the two bible readings. Ms Rothwell and Mrs McShane both addressed the students and their parents and teachers. Eileen sang while some photos of the school during this recent time period were shown. Georgia read a lovely poem that she has written called We Have Made History. The prayers were led by Head Girl, Aramide.
It was a very moving evening even though it was not the way we would have liked or planned, but it was truly memorable. Every good wish to the Class of 2020 and we hope you will keep in touch. Res Non Verba.
