Prize giving evening at St Edmund's Secondary, Dover
An audience of parents & carers, students, and staff enjoyed St Edmund’s School’s Prize Giving ceremony this term. This important occasion celebrated the achievements of former students, and forms an important part of the traditions of the school. As Mrs Parsons noted in her welcome, academic achievement for all was at the heart of St Edmund’s vision for the school; however, the prizes awarded also celebrate service to the school community and contribution to school life, as well as honouring the legacy of former pupils and staff.
Students were inspired by our Guest Speaker, Sarah Philpott, Solo Channel Swimmer who talked about teamwork, respect, trust, resilience and overcoming fear and what lies ahead as she continues her journey.
