Lowestoft students celebrate outstanding achievement
PUBLISHED: 11:18 23 December 2016
More than 200 students, staff, families and sponsors gathered for an annual awards evening
Outstanding achievements, effort, potential and community work were rewarded as success was marked at the annual student awards ceremony at Lowestoft Sixth Form College last week.
The celebration of achievement took place in the college’s Atrium, with former students and supporters also present to hear testimonials of hard work and excellence.
Guests were treated to live music throughout the evening as well as refreshments, including a chocolate fountain and popcorn, and there was also the chance to visit a fun photo booth
The guest speaker at the event was Daniella Harrison, a former student who is in her second year at Queen Mary University of London, studying English and Drama, having left the sixth form college in 2015. Daniella reflected on her time as a sixth form student as well as her time at university, which sent out an important message to those present about not letting others hold you back and to do what makes you happy.
A spokesman for the sixth form college said: “This year we had 110 nominations, with 29 students earning multiple nominations.”
The awards were presented by principal, Yolanda Botham, Atkins - designers and architects of the college, Ferini Media and Art Gallery, Harrod UK, Lovewell Blake, L6FC Corporation and the Mayor of Lowestoft Nick Webb.
Following the event the balloons were donated to Warren School, where pupils enjoyed them as part of the Christmas party. There was also a retiring collection in aid of Help an East Coast Child.
The Sixth Form College is holding an open evening on Wednesday, March 8 from 6pm to 8.30pm.
