Prize Giving 2018 - A Celebration of Success!
On Thursday 13th September, our annual Prize Giving took place this year at the Sheffield University’s Octagon Centre, with pupils, parents, teachers and the school's governors coming together to celebrate academic and co-curricular achievements.
The girls headed onto the stage to pick up their GCSE and A level certificates, as well as numerous prizes and awards for academic achievements, progress and endeavour in various subjects throughout the year. Guests were treated to a review of co-curricular achievements, with music provided by the school’s singing ensembles and self-directed orchestra, presentations about science and entrepreneurial endeavours, and a taste of the many clubs and enrichment activities on offer at Sheffield Girls’.
We also heard some words of welcome from our new Head, Mrs Nina Gunson, who spoke of the importance of the future and the role that technology will play in our lives. She closed her speech with her own advice to the girls for the future:
“This evening’s celebration represents the gateway to your future, your future that is unknown and unknowable. Not even a Jedi can foresee with any certainty what the future holds for you. But endless possibilities are now open to you. As a Jedi-like soul once said, 'Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.' I hope you go to that somewhere. I hope you find that something. Your future is not far, far away. Your future begins today.”
Finally a vote of thanks from Head Girl, Lucy Buchanan, to our pupils and staff, parents and friends, and the board of governors marked the close of a very enjoyable evening of celebration.
