On Thursday 28th June Year 13 students gathered to celebrate the end of their exams and mark the last formal gathering before they receive their examination results in August and go up to their various Universities, Colleges, training and jobs.
This was the largest Year 13 leavers’ meal so far with over 100 students in attendance. It was a poignant moment because many students have been together since Primary school and strong friendships have been built with students who joined Trinity Sixth Form from other schools.
After a series of fun awards; including the couple most likely to marry, and the student with the best tan, this was followed by a speech from Mr Shay, the outgoing and long serving Head of Sixth Form. Mr Shay’s knowledge of the students, and their parents (many of whom he taught) and his wit entertained everyone.
Mr Brew thanked Mr Shay, not just for the last few years at Trinity but for his service over the last 30 years within Thorne and Moorends. Mr Brew then issued the Principals’ Award which recognises outstanding, often unhearalded, work on behalf of others and this year it went to Natasha Redmile, Jonathan Bowers, Jake Browne and Jozie Hague
Mr Brew, the Principal, said a few words about how people may change physically from Year 7, as they grow, but it is what is in our hearts which matters, and this never changes. Tarryn Exall, Head Girl and Owen Taylor said a few words throughout the evening with a vote of thanks to the staff and students for all of their hard work. Owen wished everyone success and that they would stay in touch in the years to come.
