We enjoyed a fabulous evening of celebration at Princess Royal Theatre for Performing Arts on Monday 30 November 2023.
Students who had completed Higher Education qualifications from a range of subject areas received certificates presented by The Bailiff of Guernsey Sir Richard McMahon. Sir Richard also gave the key note address in which he referred to S Club 7’s song, “Reach for the Stars” – something the students were doing in undertaking their qualifications. He then used the word REACH to describe the journey that the students have been on.
R – For the Research undertaken leading to Results and ultimately to Reward
E – For the Endeavour of the students and the Energy they had to commit to achieving their qualifications and he stressed the importance of not being afraid to Experiment
A – for the Achievement gained and their ability to be Aspirational
C – for the Crossroads students will have faced and the Challenge to make the right Choices
H – for the Happiness felt on completing the course and hopefully feeling Hungry for more learning in the future.
Thank you to Sir Richard for giving up his time and to event sponsor SPF
