IN its 113th year Highbury Preparatory School acknowledged pupils and staff at the Foundation Phase and Senior Primary Awards Ceremonies held on 29 and 30 November respectively.

The evening ceremonies were enjoyed by parents and staff ending the academic year on a high note. It was also an opportunity to bid farewell to two teachers in particular who have served Highbury for many years, namely Paddy Collins (36 years) and Jane Leppan (18 years). Both teachers have thought hundreds of boys over their years at Highbury and will be fondly remembered for their dedication and uplifting the Highbury Heart.

They also said a warm farwell to our Headmaster, Brendan Carroll, who leaves Highbury at the end of this year.
