Annual Prize Distribution Ceremony 2016

On Wednesday 12th October 2016 the Grosvenor community of pupils, staff, parents, Governors and invited guests, including guest-of-honour Mr. Gavin Robinson MP, congregated at the nearby Orangefield Presbyterian Church to celebrate another year of all- round achievement at its annual Prize Distribution Ceremony.

Following speeches from Chair of the Board of Governors Mr. Alan McVeigh and Principal Dr. Frances Vasey, delivering her second Principal’s Report, memorable performances from the School’s Chamber and Senior Choirs, of: ‘I Can Tell the World’, arranged by Moses Hogan; ‘The Prayer’ by Carole Bayer Sager and David Foster, arranged by Josh Groban; and ‘Mr. Blue Sky’, originally recorded by Electric Light Orchestra - each conducted by Head of Music Miss Rosemary Foster with fellow Music teacher Mr Jonathan Arnold on accompaniment, as well as the distribution of prizes itself, the ceremony concluded with an entertaining and engaging speech from guest-of-honour and former Grosvenor pupil Mr. Robinson, Member of Parliament for the Belfast East constituency, which included anecdotes from his own time in the school and provided the perfect conclusion to an enjoyable afternoon of recognition and celebration.

The academic year 2015-2016 was one of huge attainment in Grosvenor, with the school enjoying notable successes in academic, sporting and musical areas, to name just a few; to this end its 2016 Prize Distribution Ceremony provided fitting recognition of its continued achievements and accomplishments in a range of curricular, co-curricular and extra- curricular activities.

Well done to everybody at Grosvenor on its incredible success over the past twelve months - all within the school now look forward to celebrating further achievements from the current academic year in October 2017.
