Speech Day and Prize Giving Day 2016
On Friday 23rd September, the school community welcomed parents, governors & special guests to a packed Speech Day at St. Michael’s Church. In all, 111 pupils had their achievements recognised at an event which is one of the highlights of the Bolingbroke Academy calendar. In the morning, the Senior School received their prizes and the guest speaker was Michael Crick who gave an inspiring speech about his life as a journalist and the value of getting an education in today’s ever changing world.
After lunch, at the Junior Prize Giving, the guest speaker was actor David Gyasi who kindly shared his personal journey facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles and challenges on his path to success.
The audience was treated to a stirring performance of ‘Seasons of Love’ from Rent by the Senior Choir and ’America’ from West Side Story by Dill Shepherd and Betty Smith on trumpet, sounding superb in our beautiful St. Michael’s church. This was followed by the pupils being presented with the prizes for their achievements.
