A Gold Medal Presentation Evening
Students and parents spent a fantastic evening at Fulston Manor School on Thursday 11th September celebrating their amazing achievements during their time spent at the school. A night of glitz and glamour was made even more special by the Guest Speaker, Lizzy Yarnold MBE. Lizzy won a gold medal during this year’s Winter Olympics at Sochi in the Skeleton race. In her inspirational talk to the students she happily talked about how she got into the sport and how everybody can achieve their goals with hard work and determination. Mr Brookes, Headteacher, commented on how proud he had been of the students who had completed their GCSEs and GCEs this summer. It was, as he mentioned, exactly as Lizzy had suggested, through the hard work of students, teachers and parents that they had reached their goals and could look forward to their future.
Special Awards were given to a large number of students who had excelled in particular subjects and for a variety of reasons which included academic achievements, peer mentoring and progress throughout their school life.
