Rewards Day at SJT
As the Spring term drew to a close, it was time to recognise the efforts that our wonderful students at Sir John Talbot’s had put in over the past few months. The final week of term saw two ‘Oscars’ assemblies – at which a number of students in each House received the titular trophies in recognition of their efforts or achievements in a number of categories – while the final day of term was about the entire school, and rewarding individuals for their hard work and dedication since January.
The Oscars were split into several categories and, in Academy Awards-style, nominations were put forward by students and tutors, before the final winners were selected by a number of staff members. Among the awards on offer were Most Supportive Student, Best Citizen, Best Attendance and Behaviour, Best Achiever of the Term and the Nobel Prize, and one student from each House was selected for each coveted prize. After the trophies were awarded and praise given, each assembly was then rounded off with an egg hunt to celebrate Easter.
On the final day of term, the entire school gathered for the Rewards Assembly. The atmosphere was extremely warm and supportive, with students and teachers alike in high spirits. Certificates were awarded for House Points achievements, congratulations offered to the several students who excelled at the Foreign Languages Spelling Bee recently, and winners were chosen from the day’s Easter Bonnet Competition – Zara Leary, Oliwia Michalowicz and Hayden Podmore earned the competition’s top honours.
A raffle was then held with several excellent prizes being claimed by a number of lucky students, before a slideshow presentation was delivered chronicling some of the school’s highlights from over the past term.
The school was also lucky enough to welcome back former student Jess Taylor, who received her Gold DofE certificate in front of the entire school. Jess had been unable to make it to the Gold Award Presentation at St James’s Palace when she had been invited to attend but, luckily for us, she was able to receive her award at SJT instead.
All in all, it was an inspiring end to an excellent term.
