On Tuesday, 7th November, we welcomed back last year’s Year 11 students, along with their parents, to our annual prize-giving celebration evening.
It was pleasing to see so many of our former students celebrate their achievements, not just in the GCSE examinations, but also their commitment and hard work over the last academic year. In addition, service to the school and outstanding attendance were also recognised. Prizes for individual subjects were nominated by the teaching staff based on progress, achievement, effort, behaviour and enthusiasm for the subject.
Mr Shields welcomed the students back to the school and reminded them of their contribution to the school’s achievements, particularly in the past year, with the award of Croydon School of the Year and our successful Ofsted inspection. He also spoke of the values which the school had instilled in each student over the years and reminded them that, regardless of where their careers take them in the years ahead, they would always remain part of the St Mary’s family.
The recent passing of Mr Maurice Reaney (Headteacher 1955-1986) was also commemorated with a reflection on his time at the school as well as his legacy to St Mary’s pupils - past, present and future.
The evening continued with the award of prizes by Mrs Englefield and Mrs Aboyade, following which students collecting their GCSE examination certificates. Special mention must be made of Roshidat Olawale who was awarded the annual Headteacher’s Award by Mr Shields. Deacon Tony started and finished the evening with prayers, including our special School Prayer.
