This week, St Andrews University Students take to the stage in The Younger Hall for their very own Graduation Ceremonies, so lets us relive last Friday's St Leonards Prizegiving once more! It was time to celebrate our fantastic final year Sixth Form Students, before entering their next chapter: life beyond school.
Prize winners were announced, the choir sang beautifully and some of our talented Year 13 musicians performed individually. Our guest, Lady MacGregor of MacGregor, known to most as broadcaster and writer Fiona Armstrong, then gave an empowering and uplifting speech, commending our leavers for demonstrating confidence as they walked across the Younger Hall stage. She reminded us about the importance of kindness, compassion and communication in today’s ever changing world and wished our school leavers the very best of luck as they go on to follow their dreams. The audience also enjoyed memorable speeches from our Head Boy Justus Imkampe and Head Girl Linsey Scott, as they both thanked the school, sharing their fond memories and highlights, and that they will always regard St Leonards School as their 'home from home'.
Once the ceremony ended with the Pipe Band procession, the celebrations continued back at school, with delicious strawberry tarts on the lawn, before the Leavers Ball began at Fairmont St Andrews. A wonderful way for our former pupils to complete their time at St Leonards.
Well done to our Sixth Form & Senior School Prize Winners. A sincere thank you to our guest speaker, the musical performers and to parents, families and friends who attended the ceremony and made memories last weekend! Please click here to visit our facebook page to view some photo highlights.
