Larry was Guest of Honour at last night’s St Sampson’s School Records of Achievement and Awards in front of students, teachers and parents.
In addition to presenting awards and certificates to over 100 students of ‘The Class of 2016’, Larry paid tribute in his speech to the dedication, hard work and professionalism of the pupils in Year 11 at the school.
Larry told students in the packed hall that their success represents the true spirit of St Sampson’s High School and encouraged them to continue to show determination in all future endeavours, which would bring success.
Awards ranged from those in music, media, physical education and the creative arts, along with community, services to the school and for showing effort and determination. The President of the School Committee Award for Overall Excellence went to Thomas Rylatt, who was head boy at the school last year.
Mrs Annabel Bolt, Head teacher, introduced the evening, which featured music performed by GCSE students, speeches by Tom Rylatt and head girl, Charlotte Zabiela, together with introductions to each pupil prior to receiving their award by their form teachers.
