Recognition for returning Runshaw students at our annual A Level Awards Evening.
Our annual A Level awards ceremony took place on the evening of Monday 16th December. The Silverdale Sports Hall was transformed into a spectacular venue to warmly welcome back a large number of our A Level students who left in the summer of 2019. Many parents and relatives also attended as our guests. Our former students received special awards, subject awards and their A Level certificates.
The Mayors of Chorley and South Ribble were in attendance, as well as college governors. Clare Russell was our fabulous compere for the evening and the audience was addressed by Simon Partington and Warren Middleton. Domonique West also spoke on behalf of the student body, delivering a brilliantly crafted speech with great confidence. During the evening we were entertained by excellent performances from Runshaw’s superb Brass Ensemble and other highly talented student musicians. The ceremony was followed by drinks and festive canapés, provided by the Runshaw Catering team.
The event was chiefly organised by Michelle Harvey, Gill Davies, Gail Greenwood and Martin Oldham but, as always, it was a great cross-college team effort; from subject teams and pastoral mentors providing nominations, staff registering students on arrival, the organising of seating and prompting students and VIPs on the evening, to cleaning, decorating and security. Thank you very much to all those involved.
It was a wonderful evening and a fantastic opportunity for us to show how proud we are of the achievements of our A Level students.
