Junior School Prize Giving 2021
Year Six pupils were rewarded for their academic ambition and community spirit at this year’s Junior School Prize Giving.
With parents tuning in at home via Google Meet, the Chairman of Governors Mr Christopher Dunn welcomed everyone to the celebration.
The Year Six Orchestra performed Mozart’s ‘Non Piu Andrai’ from ‘The Marriage Of Figaro’ before Junior School Headmaster Mr Matthew Copping delivered an inspiring talk where he read from broadcaster, writer and adventurer Ben Fogle’s book ‘Up: My Life’s Journey to the Top of Everest’.
Pupils then picked up their well-earned prizes. A list of award winners can be found at the bottom of this story.
Finn Mc performed a baritone solo – Tom Davoren’s ‘Beaufort Allegro’ – and the Head Boys and Girls for the year James P, Robert L, Finn R, Florence B, Maya G and Charlotte U delivered humorous and appreciative speeches reflecting on their time in the Junior School.
The Leavers’ Awards were then presented and this was followed by a vocal solo by Erin R who sang ‘Part Of Your World’ from ‘The Little Mermaid’ – this year’s Year Six play.
