Speech Day and Prize Giving 2022

We had an exciting afternoon yesterday celebrating the year with our annual Speech Day and Prize Giving. It took place in a marquee on the field which was full to the brim with pupils, staff, family, and friends.

The guest speaker this year was Ginny Donnelly, a member of the community team at Haven House Children’s Hospice. She told us about all of the vital work Haven House does to care for seriously ill children and their parents.

Children from Years 1-6 performed an array of songs including ‘Pirates!’, ‘Tomorrow’ and Mrs Belej’s favourite ‘A Million Dreams’. The huge audience was also entertained by an amazing performance from the Oaklands Orchestra. Our guest then presented prizes to a selection of our hardworking pupils.

We were very proud of our Sports Captains and our Head Boy and Head Girl, who gave very informative reports.

A touching farewell speech was made by Mrs Belej, who was presented with gifts and a huge thank you from the staff, pupils and parents.

Well done to everyone who won a prize, but all of our children should be very proud of their progress this year. What a lovely afternoon!
