FAREWELL TO YEAR 13
This term we bid farewell to our Year 13 pupils with a series of events to celebrate their time at school.
Work Hard, Play Hard and Look After Each Other
This is the PGS mantra for our caring and happy community and the Year 13 Leavers have certainly followed this advice during the final few weeks of their time at school. Their endeavours in the library in recent weeks have been commendable; however, their commitment to the various Leavers’ events has been outstanding.
The Leavers’ Day celebrations at the end of June were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The moving service at the Cathedral which included superb musical performances from the Leavers’ Choir and a good dose of humour from pupils celebrating their time at the school preceded a delicious lunch on Governors Green.
This day with friends and family followed on from the Sixth Form Leavers’ Day in May, traditionally the final ‘school day’. This was equally as poignant as the Leavers’ ties were handed out in the Cathedral before a final PGS barbeque, impressively coordinated by the school’s catering staff. The Leavers’ Ball was a very special evening, a champagne reception in the Spinnaker Tower set against the stunning backdrop of the city’s seascape was an appropriate farewell to this year group.
“The class of 2019 have set an excellent example to the rest of our community. They have shown their younger peers how to celebrate success, how to make the most of every opportunity and how to be part of a caring and vibrant Sixth Form community,” commented Mr Luke Rees, Head of Sixth Form. “We wish them every success for the future.”
