Southlands High School celebrated the achievements and examination results of former students at a prestigious awards ceremony. The event was hosted by Deputy Head Mr Davies and special guest County Councillor Kim Snape, Champion for Young People was on hand to present the awards.
Over 300 guests packed into the school hall to spend two hours applauding, laughing and sharing lots of happy memories of time spent at Southlands. On arrival students were asked to write on a post-it their favourite memory and many were read out during the evening. Highlights included using singing to remember difficult cases when studying Law and many students had enjoyed science lessons in the new facilities.
The students names were announced from envelopes similar to that of the Oscar’s for a variety of awards ranging from highest achieving in subject areas such as Maths and English to the WW2 veterans award for determination. Following the awards, there was a buffet which allowed informal time for students and their families to meet with former teachers. There was a great atmosphere and the event was well attended.
“The class of 2013 had many highlights including record breaking subject examination results. I am delighted to welcome back so many former students to celebrate their achievements and share lots of happy memories. I wish them all best for the future.”
Mark Fowle, Head Teacher
“It was a pleasure to attend Southlands Awards evening. Both the students and staff are a credit to the school. I’m sure they will all go on to succeed in whatever they choose to do. Well done to all!” County Councillor Kim Snape
