St David’s Doings

2016-12-07 06:01

ST David's Diocesan School held its prize giving on 1 December. Families, friends and guests were entertained by the school and choir singing a variety of songs, accompanied by Mrs Kate Newmarch on guitar.

After the awards and thanks, the Grade 7 class presented an extract from Akimbo by Alexander McCall Smith, a story about how ivory poachers were prevented from shooting an elephant family and were arrested, thanks to the bravery of Akimbo.

Each Grade 1 pupil received a story book for completing the first year at school. Each Grade 2 pupil received a certificate for his or her special talent and contribution to the class.

Mrs Di Mason, guest of honour, presented the special awards to Grade 7. St David's would like to express its appreciation to the sponsors for their generosity.
