Prize Day 2021

CLSG Prize Day audience at Guildhall

After two long years, it was an absolute pleasure to be back in the beautiful Guildhall for prize giving last Friday. We particularly enjoyed welcoming back many of last year's year 13 to give them something of the fitting send off which had been denied them in the summer. Many had just started university or were poised to do so, and it was lovely to hear their tales. The weather was kind and shafts of afternoon light illuminated the whole proceedings. Poignant moments included the presentation of the first Haadia Irfan prize in memory of Haadia who died early this year, and the presentation of the Amelia Ward prizes in the twentieth anniversary of Amelia's tragic death. In spite being tinged with some sadness, the event was essentially a joyful one which paid testimony to the resourcefulness of the school over the last 18 months. Ishara, our, head girl gave an intensely moving speech, and you can read Jenny Brown's powerful address here.
