On Thursday 5 July we held our annual Speech Day and Prize Giving, the perfect opportunity to celebrate the many achievements and successes of our pupils throughout the year.
The event took place in Chingford Assembly Hall, and this year we had a very special guest speaker, Susanna Worth from United World Schools. The charity is dedicated to improving the education for some of the world’s poorest children and establish schools in areas of the world that are unreached. It was great to hear her talk about her experiences and gave the pupils a lot to think about.
As well as the huge array of prizes that were awarded, the evening was filled with many performances and musical numbers. The Senior Vocal Leads gave us a beautiful rendition of ‘You Raise Me Up’, and the Senior Band performed ‘Holiday’ much to the delight of the audience.
We are very proud of our Heads of School, Gabriella and Daniel, who both gave very moving speeches about their time at Normanhurst. We wish the new Heads of School, House Captains and Prefects the best of luck next year.
It was a fantastic evening full of proud pupils, staff, friends and family. Congratulations to all of our prize winners!
