St Joseph’s School enjoys celebrating excellence and on Thursday 20th October 2011, they did just that at their annual Prize Giving evening. Year 11 pupils from 2010-2011 were invited back to attend the event to celebrate their GCSE results and other achievements throughout the year.
The school welcomed the Mayor and Mayoress of Launceston to join family and friends to celebrate the pupils’ success at Launceston Town Hall.
The evening began with a Music Concert and the Orchestra’s performance of Pirates of the Caribbean. Canzonetta then sang ‘A Bunch of Thyme’ and the Chamber Choir performed ‘Cantate Domino’. The concert ended with the whole school choir singing a medley from ‘The Lion King’.
The Guest Speaker this year was Georgina (Gorgs) Geikie, an athlete from Okehampton. She is the British Number One Lady Pistol Shooter and she will be competing in the London 2012 Olympics. Georgina gave an inspiring speech to the pupils encouraging them to work hard and never give up, before presenting them with their awards.
Senior Prize Giving is a highlight of the school year & recognises talent & achievement throughout the school.
