Pupils from Hethersett High School celebrated their
achievements over the past year at a special presentation evening.
Prizes at the Achievement Evening were presented by
Deputy Headteacher Mike Masters; Year Heads David Day, Neil Stenton,
Fraser Sparks and Lynsey Ward; President
of Hethersett and District Lions Club Anne Hackett and vice-chair of
governors Clare Lacey-Hastings. Master of Ceremonies for the evening was
Assistant Headteacher John Humphreys who was presented with a gift to mark
his coming retirement after 29 years at the school.
Mr Masters welcomed parents, governors and friends
and praised the efforts of the youngsters, highlighting the success of
pupils and particularly recent achievements in a national on-line writing
and local high schools’ maths competitions. He also thanked sponsors of
awards. Entertainment was supplied by Annie Floyd and Lily-Ann Reeve.
“The students receiving awards richly deserve the
recognition of all their hard work and community spirit,” said
Consultant Headteacher John Catton in a foreword to the programme. Mr
Catton was unable to attend the event due to a prior engagement.
