What a pleasure it was to stand on the stage in our main hall last week and present certificates and awards to last year’s Year 11 and to many of our current students.
It was the first Awards Evening we’ve had in a few years at Eastern High and really highlighted some of the talent we have.
Last year’s Year 11 need a special mention overcoming the odds and doubling the results of the previous year and throwing the difficulties the school went through, well into the past.
A big thanks to Assembly Member Vaughan Gething and Barbara Cooke, our Chair of Governors, for presenting the awards.
The highlight of the evening for most must have been the singing performances by our students. Laura Dawkes in Year 10 performed an excellent rendition of ‘On My Own’. This was followed by a really well harmonised version of ‘Seasons of Love’ by our performance arts students.
After a few false starts Mr Gething quickly stepped in to lead the Welsh National Anthem which was sung by all at the end of the evening. If you were there, I promise I will be able to sing the anthem in Welsh by next year!
Full details of the evening and those awarded certificates are attached.
