Following on from the success of the annual Newquay Tretherras Key Stage 3 awards, the school held it’s first achievement ceremony for KS4 students at The Atlantic Hotel.
The awards ceremonies are held to acknowledge students’ achievements and progress in subjects as well as presenting special awards to students who were outstanding in other ways.
The Head Boy and Head Girl, Matt Banks and Poppy Wring, hosted the ceremony whilst former students, Holly Bishop and Adam Fenton, along with Headteacher Sue Martin, presented awards to around 150 students over Years 9 and 10.
The Headteacher’s Award was presented to Year 10 student Karriad Shawcross and Year 9 student Simon Turner.
Olivia Ball-Hymns, who had a life saving liver transplant when she was nine, was granted the Inspirational Award for her charity work as well as her national sporting achievement in swimming.
Richard Higginson, organiser of the evening, said, “A stunning venue to host the first NT Key Stage 4 Award Evening to match the many outstanding academic achievements of our Year 9 and 10 students. It was very rewarding to see all the winners receive their awards in recognition of all their hard work in front of their peers and families.”
Mrs Sue Martin, Headteacher at Newquay Tretherras said, “They are both tremendously hard working year groups who have already accomplished some fantastic achievements. They have taken every opportunity given to them and made something special out of it.”
