THE LAST DAY OF TERM USHERED IN A GAMUT OF EMOTIONS AS PUPILS AND THEIR FAMILIES CELEBRATED THE END OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR WITH ALL THE EXPERIENCES AND ACHIEVEMENTS IT HAD DELIVERED.
As the 2015-16 Academic year drew to a close, the school community celebrated on the last day of term.
Staff, pupils and their families attended a service at Brecon Cathedral where the Bishop of Swansea and Brecon, The Rt Revd John Davies, addressed the congregation.
Back at Christ College, families were treated to a wonderful exhibition in the R J Boulton Archive, where Christ College Archivist and Head of Learning Support, Mrs Felicity Kilpatrick had created highlighted 15 items and 41 facts which told the history of Christ College from 1541 to the present day.
The Creative Arts Departments had their fantastic ceramics, fine art and photography on display in the Powell Family Gallery and over lunch, with the weather set fair, many picnics took place out on the beautiful, landscaped grounds.
It was then time for the Prize Giving ceremony where the Chair of Governors, Sir Paul Silk, welcomed pupils, their families and staff. Head of Christ College, Mrs Emma Taylor, then gave her speech, which had the audience chuckling away to some funny anecdotes. Both the Head and the Chair of Governors, referred to the recent review of the school by the Good Schools Guide and the many, many ringing endorsements of Christ College’s teaching, ethos, boarding facilities and the strength of the relationships and loyalty between pupils and their teachers.
The Guest Speaker, Lieutenant Colonel the Reverend Nicholas Mercer, then presented the prizes before delivering his own speech.
With Prizegiving over, the Upper Sixth and their families attended the Leavers’ Service in the Chapel. With many funny moments and reminisces there were tears at the end as it suddenly hit home that this was their last formal act as pupils of Christ College. We wish them all the very best for the future and look forward to seeing them in August for A Level results day.
