ST NICHOLAS HOUSE HAVE HAD A VERY BUSY WEEK CELEBRATING THE SUCCESSES OF THE YEAR WITH PRIZE GIVING
We were honoured that our Head, Mr Pearson agreed to assist and present awards in the Prize Giving ceremony, along with other members of the school community. Director of Music, Mr Ling presented ABRSM examination certificates and Mrs Gardner presented Cycle Safety awards.Before the ceremony, we enjoyed listening to performance by our Year 3&4 recorder group in the Neuadd foyer.
We were also treated to a wonderful cello ensemble performance involving pupils from Year 5-Year 12 under the direction of Mr Alan Davies. This really set the tone for the ceremony ahead.
During the ceremony, which was attended by parents and staff of Christ College, we heard wise words from Head of Christ College Mr Pearson and later listened to a short speech by St Nicholas House prefect, Henry Morgan-Gervis.
We enjoyed a performance from Team Wye, who performed their winning Eisteddfod song and a rendition of ‘A Million Dreams’ which was performed by all pupils in St Nicholas House.
Members of the House Council and Eco-Committee came forward to shake Mrs Lewis’ hand after completing their year of service. We also gave a special award to our 6 original pioneer members of St Nicholas House who received their ‘St Nicks’ Survivor’ certificates.
We were mesmerised by instrumental solo by Tadhg Iley on the guitar.
Mrs Lewis concluded by summarising the year’s events, mentioning special highlights and gave thanks to all those who have supported St Nicholas in the last year.We enjoyed a sumptuous after ceremony buffet and drinks for all those who attended.It was a very enjoyable and successful event for all concerned.
