Saint Paul’s recently welcomed former pupils and their families back to the school. The former pupils were returning to the school for a special Certificate and Awards Presentation where they received their exam certificates.
The event is the school's annual celebration of the achievements of its pupils during the previous academic year with awards being given to pupils from last year’s Year 11 for both achievement and progress. There was a host of awards celebrating success throughout all aspects of life at Saint Paul’s.
Parents, friends, pupils and teachers gathered to recognise the achievements of the pupils and this important milestone in their lives. The event was another proud moment for the school and a fantastic opportunity to reflect on the success of the students and the staff who support them.
The school was delighted that Mrs Mary Hunter, Principal of Xaverian College Manchester, who has close links with the school, was able to attend as guest of honour and speak with the children about their achievements.
Assistant Headteacher, Mrs Claire Hunt, commented: “The Presentation Ceremony where ex-pupils return to school to collect their exam certificates is a high point in the school calendar. Their proud families joined with us to celebrate their wonderful achievements. We wish them all every success in the next chapter of their lives and wish to thank parents for all the support they have given them and us over the past few years.”
“It was wonderful to see so many young people come up to proudly receive their certificates and awards,” explained Deputy Headteacher, Mr Russell Paterson. “The event recognises the outstanding achievement and effort of the students.We are very proud of them all and look forward to seeing them build on their success in the future.”
