Prize Giving 2015
Prize Giving 2015 was a fantastic event where we celebrated the achievements of our students.
I presented my report – reflecting on the past 12 months, and looking forward to the next 12 months (copy here: Prize Giving 2015 Principal's Report.)
The Chamber Choir sang beautifully, a couple of light-hearted pieces; Everybody Wants to be a Cat (from Aristocats) and Consider Yourself (from Oliver)
His Honour, Judge Trigger, then presented the prizes to the top students – 64 books and 15 cheques. Top student, Mark Ha, was presented with this year's Principal's Prize.
Judge Trigger then started his speech by giving a special award to Mr Michael Hewer – in recognition of 55 years of service to the School. Mr Hewer, started work at Ruthin School as Senior French Master and Housemaster of Trevor in September 1960 and is still teaching. He is also instrumental in keeping the School Grounds looking stunning. gave an inspirational speech to all assembled.
Judge Trigger then gave an inspirational speech, reminding us of the need for humour and he gave some very amusing personal examples.
Finally, Head Boy (Benedict Choi) and Head Girl (Caira Williams) gave a vote of thanks to their teachers, non-academic staff and the School. Their comments were heartwarming – hearing them speak with such love for their School, their staff and their fellow classmates was moving.
