South Shore Excellence Awards
It was a night to celebrate high achievement for Falmouth School students at the recent University of Exeter South Shore Excellence awards. The awards ceremony in its sixth year, took place at Tremough Campus and celebrated the achievements of the four South Shore Education Partnership Schools: Falmouth, Helston, Mullion and Penryn. Students in Years 7, 9, 11 and for some schools, Year 13 received awards on the evening.
Students from each of the four schools were recognised for; Academic Achievement, Artistic Achievement, Positive Contributions and Sporting Achievement. Students were treated to a glitzy reception including refreshments, whilst they posed for pictures with their school friends and families. There was also a performance from Year 12 Performing Arts students, who performed a piece from Matilda ahead of a trip to watch the production.
The night’s first awards were for Academic Achievement, with Jay Cross (Year 7) Isabel Wicks, Reuben Hesser (both Year 9), Bartek Machnik, Morgan Bowden (both Year 11) and Grace Willetts (Year 13) the first group of recipients. James Chick (Year 7), Cohen Fitzgerald, Abigail Curnow (both Year 9), Marcia Hammond, Reuben Campbell (both Year 11) and Abiah Wyatt (Year 13) were the winners in the next category, which was for artistic achievement.
The outstanding achievements kept on coming, as Tom Wright (Year 7), Matthew Pellow, Katie Mahony (both Year 9), Sennen Addinall, Niamh Miller (both Year 11) and Ryan Lillie (Year 13) were all recognised for their positive contributions to Falmouth School. The final awards of the evening were for sporting achievement, with Reuben Sewell (Year 7), Hugo Rudolph, Naomi Marsh (both Year 9), Harvey Martin, Molly Carter (both Year 11) and Adam Sefton scooping the awards on what was a fantastic evening.
Head of School Alex George, was delighted to see so many students honoured. “The school is delighted to continue the partnership with the University of Exeter and their annual Excellence Awards.
