On Thursday 23rd November as a community we celebrated the achievements of the Year 11 pupils who left us in June. They returned to receive their GCSE certificates, Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Awards and Special Leavers’ and Subject Awards. These included our oldest Award ‘The Brother Hilary Cup’ which is given to a pupil for special merit and outstanding service to the school.
Alongside pupils and their parents/carers, invited guests included: Governors and staff, primary head teachers, De La Salle Brothers, LEA representatives and the mayor and mayoress. All attended to celebrate with and wish our leavers the very best.
Our Chair of governors, Teresa Sims, opened the evening with a welcome to all and Mrs Thompson our new HOLA for R.E led us in prayer. Soloists in year 7 and 11 entertained us all and Mr Rannard then introduced himself as the new Head teacher. Our guest speaker for the evening was author Frank Cottrell-Boyce who is an ex West Park pupil, his speech was both inspirational and highly amusing.
An enjoyable and reflective evening was had by all and we wish our pupils, who will always be part of our Lasallian family a happy future.
