St Nicholas have had a very busy couple of weeks celebrating their successes with Prize Giving, the Y6 Maths Olympiad and Sports Day.
Pupils and staff were delighted that Mrs Taylor agreed to assist and present awards in the Prize Giving ceremony, especially poignant in her last term as Head of Christ College.
Before the ceremony, everyone enjoyed listening to performances by the cello group under the direction of Mr Alan Davies. This really set the tone for the afternoon ahead.
During the ceremony, which was attended by parents and staff of Christ College, wise words were delivered by Head Girl, Amy Baker. Team Wye performed their winning Eisteddfod song and all the St Nicholas House pupils gave a rendition of the title song from their recent production of ‘We’ll Meet Again’.
Mesmerising instrumental solos were given by Pavel and Rory on the guitar and the audience were treated to a wonderful harp performance by Y5 pupil, Alaw.
Prizes were awarded to the following pupils:
|Taylor Cup for Outstanding Achievement||Charlotte W Y6|
