Well Done to You All!
The annual Year 6 and Year 7 Celebration of Achievement Ceremony took place on Sunday 21 June. Once again we gathered to celebrate the achievements of our Year 6 pupils as they come to the end of an era and progress to the Senior School and for our Year 7 students as they conclude and reflect on their first year at the Senior School. A special highlight this year was a live performance of the National Anthem of the Kingdom of Bahrain by the Senior School’s Cantata Group. This was followed by the welcome address which was delivered by the Head of Senior School, Mr Nick Wilson.
After a formal opening from Mr van der Eyken and Mrs Beck, the event was handed over to a team of sophisticated and eloquent student presenters who took to the stage to read out the names of each award recipient. Awards ranged from Academic Achievement, Outstanding Progress, Community Service, Global Citizenship, Effort, Form Tutor Prizes, Autonomous Learner Awards and Class Peer Prizes. A notable highlight of the event was the address from Mr Goodwin and the awarding of the prestigious Principal’s Award to Layal Humaidan in Year 6 and to Josie Dodson in Year 7. Mr Goodwin acknowledged the quality of the student presenters and congratulated all the award winners. The event was strongly supported by three musical interludes by Year 6 and Year 7 students.
