Today term ended with Prize Giving. Our special guest, Maggie Alphonsi, gave a very engaging address about her achievements and how she has worked to achieve her goals. Children and parents alike were inspired.
Our Heads of School, Annabel and Hector gave a fantastic speech, on behalf of Year 8, about their journey, or should I say voyage, through the school.
To end the afternoon, we commissioned our Year 8 leavers to take the values they have learned here and make a difference in their senior schools and in the world.
Earlier in the day Year 8 led a wonderful assembly in which they expressed their appreciation for everything the teachers and staff at Barrow Hills have done for them. Year 8 also took the lead in the end of term leavers’ Mass.
We also managed to fit in the House Art competition and the Art and Design Technology show on Thursday evening. Thank you to all the parents who attended and to Mrs Hatcher, Mr Conway, Mr Fisher and Mr Clarke for inspiring the children to create such great work.
A great end to a fantastic school year! My thanks to all the children for their hard work and enthusiasm, to the staff for their dedication and commitment and to the parents for their support of the school and its values.
With best wishes for a restful and safe summer break,
