Samworth Church Academy was the venue for a splendid Speech Night, rewarding students for their outstanding dedication and achievements and in some cases their inspirational approach to learning and life. Seventy-eight students were awarded recognition at the ceremony for various accomplishments including highest attitude towards learning, most improved students and students of the year.
The evening had eminent guest speakers in the form of Sir David Samworth CBE and Mr Mark Pyper OBE and had dance demonstrations by ‘Dance Destination’ and a performance by Samworth Church Academy Choir and musical group.
Dawn Meade, who was recognised for her Contribution to the Community said, "I really wasn’t expecting it because I enjoyed doing it all last year; I didn’t do it for any recognition."
The Samworth Church Academy holds a Speech Night event annually to celebrate a year of achievement by students and this year’s event is neatly summed up by Frances Tryner, who works at the Academy. She said, "Speech Night was a stunning evening, unashamedly show-casing all of the hard work and achievements of our students at the Academy. The pride of the staff, friends and families of the students was palpable in the 500 strong audience".
Mr Mark Pyper, a governor at the Academy and recently retired Head at the famous Gordonstoun School, delivered an inspirational speech for the crowd of 500 guests and described the evening in glowing terms. He said, "Speech Night at The Samworth Church Academy really was an occasion which will be long remembered by everyone present. It was beautifully staged and technically flawless, giving the impression of a totally professional event. Some highly accomplished singing and dancing by the students helped to create a dynamic and tingling atmosphere, preparing the way for a marvellous celebration of remarkable achievement by some highly talented and thoroughly committed young people. It was a glittering occasion with a wonderfully warm glow clearly felt by everyone present."
