Students, parents and staff came together to experience Bebington High Sports College's 'Celebration of Achievement' Awards Evening on Thursday 29th September. It was a night to remember for all who attended, with awards marking the successes of the students across the board from academia to sport, community and the arts.
A number of prestigious guests shared in the excitement of the evening, including ex-head teacher, Mr Brian Jordan and ex-deputy head teacher Mr Warren Brooks plus invited speakers; Rt Hon Andy Burnham MP and Mr Tim Quinn (Illustrator of the Marvel Comic Group).
The theme for 2016's celebration evening was 'Resilience & Perseverance' which ran throughout the evening; the emphasis from each of our speakers was on continued hard work, resilience and overcoming obstacles to achieve life's goals.
The guests gave motivational talks to the students before presenting the deserving winners of each category with their awards. Video and audio clips brought to life the subject departments, and the lighting and sound system created a 'state of the art' setting with some great performances from the drama and music departments taking place.
These awards gave Bebington High Sports College the opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of its students and it was wonderful to recognise recipients who had overcome personal difficulties as well as those for academic success. Following the event the guest speakers stayed to meet with the parents and students whilst being served a variety of canapés and refreshments.
The evening demonstrated the level of commitment that staff & students at Bebington High Sports College give to the school.
