Yavneh College was delighted to celebrate so much student success at the annual Prize day earlier this week.
Guest of Honour Lord Daniel Finkelstein, Jewish Chronicle writer and Associate Editor of the Times addressed the students and their parents emphasising the beauty and importance of education and the challenges that young people face as they go out into the world.
Prizes were awarded both for academic attainment and effort as well as for contribution to the school and the wider community, sporting achievement and musical and artistic talent.
The event included musical contributions from the school choir, known as the YC Singers and from Year 10 student Gabrielle Adda who played Rondo alla Turk.
Executive Headteacher, Mr Spencer Lewis said, ‘Prize Day is always such a moving occasion as it is an opportunity for us to recognise not just the outstanding achievement of our pupils but the hard work that they put into to their studies. Our prizes for kindness and contribution to the community are particularly pleasing especially the opportunity to present the Dr Dena Coleman Memorial Cup for Chesed, in memory of the late Dr Coleman, founding Headteacher of the school’.
