Classes of 2023 & 2024 Graduation
Con-Graduations to the Classes of 2023 & 2024!
Wednesday 11th July saw Bolingbroke's first ever graduation ceremony for Year 7 and 8 pupils.
The afternoon was filled with pupils and parents recognising their successes outside of the classroom across the academic year. Pupils were awarded a Pass, 2:1 or 1st Class graduation based upon a number of achievements including learning an instrument, taking part in a sports team and starring in plays.
The audience were treated to beautiful performances from Zoe Grimsey (Year 8) on the clarinet, Mariam Akunjee (Year 7) on the violin, Eliza Michel-Finch (Year 7) on the flute and Macy Philips (Year 7) on the flute. These performances were the perfect opportunity for the pupils to exhibit everything that they have learned this year in Music lessons and show off their skills in front of very proud family and friends.
In addition to musical performances there were wonderful speeches from pupils about their memories of the year: Dani Hughes and Evelyn Sai in Year 8 and Chloe Burrows and Regan Tahi in Year 7.
These speeches were not only engaging and entertaining, but clearly showed what a journey the pupils have been on this year, with so many memories to cherish. Following the performances the pupils were invited on stage to rapturous applause as they collected their certificates and officially graduated as pupils of 2023 and 2024.
