Junior Certificate Prize giving

The morning of Tuesday 25th June saw Grosvenor welcome local athletics star Katy Kirk as guest speaker at its annual Junior Certificate Prize-giving Ceremony, held in the William Moles Hall.

The ceremony provides an opportunity to celebrate academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular success amongst pupils in Forms 1 – 3 within the School.  As well as each member of Form Three receiving their Junior Certificates in recognition of their achievements in the end-of-year summer examinations, notable awards were also distributed in recognition of pupils’ achievements in the fields of, amongst others, Sport, Drama, Charity, the Environment and Home Economics.

This year’s ceremony offered the opportunity to recognize a number of significant achievements within the School, as evidenced by Leo Bell (3G) receiving its award in the ‘Best Kept Post Primary School 2013’ category, Mark Woods (3E) accepting Grosvenor’s ‘Best Use of Engineering Theory’ prize and Andrew Proctor (3G) collecting the ‘Best STEM Club Northern Ireland’ award.

Following an informative speech from the School’s Principal Mr Robin McLoughlin, which provided an overview of the extensive achievements within junior school throughout the year, the ceremony was rounded off by an engaging and inspirational talk from guest of honor Miss Kirk, a member of Britain's 4x400m relay team which won gold in last year's European Athletic Junior Championships as well as one of the seven young sportspeople who helped to light the cauldron at last year’s Olympic Games Opening ceremony in London.  

Well done to those whose achievements were recognized at this event.
