On Friday 28 August, St Paul’s was full of excitement and anticipation as our new Year 11 students were invited into school for Junior Prizegiving.

Year Head, Mr Geoghegan warmly welcomed everyone back and talked about how important it is to acknowledge the effort that the pupils had put in during their junior years at St Paul’s. He challenged them to start the new term with a positive attitude, saying everything else would fall into place and in two years’ time, at the end of their GCSE courses, they will achieve great things.

Pupils received numerous trophies for best in subject, endeavour, form class, attendance and special achievement awards, which include pupils achieving GCSE awards whilst only being in Year 10.

Principal, Mr Burns then spoke to the pupils, saying this Year group were a special, dynamic and welcoming group of young people. He described them as a “community within a community”. He believes that they are “high flyers and high triers” and commended Learning Support pupil Oisin Mee for achieving a grade A in GCSE Music whilst undertaking it two years earlier than expected.

Mr Burns told the pupils that they are no longer children but young adults and they are starting a new phase of their lives, and also stated that “what you will learn next week could affect the outcome of your GCSEs in 2017”. He wanted them to be determined and focused young people, who if they are faced with a difficult subject will not be defeated but will look upon this as a challenge and succeed.

Well Done to all.
