Speech Day Celebrates Pupil Achievements

Bethany School’s annual Speech Day was a splendid celebration of achievements, a chance to welcome back Old Bethanians for Reunion Day, and a heartfelt farewell to the Year 13 Leavers.

The lively morning event highlighted the school’s array of talents with live music, engaging performances, and remarkable displays of pupil work. Artwork, projects, and accomplishments from various subjects were showcased, visually representing the pupils’ hard work and dedication throughout the year.

The Prize Giving ceremony then began with several insightful speeches from key members of the Bethany School community. Jonathan Fenn, Chair of Governors, opened with words of encouragement and gratitude for the pupils, parents, and staff, emphasising the school’s dedication to providing a nurturing and supportive environment for every pupil. Following Mr Fenn, the Headmaster reflected on the past year’s achievements and progress, highlighting ‘Seven Steps to Happiness’. He praised the pupils’ efforts and urged them to continue striving for excellence.

This year’s guest of honour was Ama Agbeze. Ama is an internation netball player and has represented England for many years – winning 100 caps. She was captain when England won the gold medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and in 2019 she received an MBE for her services to netball. She shared personal stories and motivational insights, encouraging pupils to pursue their dreams, and embrace future challenges.

The day culminated in the eagerly awaited prizegiving ceremony, where pupils were recognised and awarded for their outstanding achievements throughout the year. The ceremony showcased the diverse talents and accomplishments within the pupil body, reinforcing the school’s commitment to academic excellence, personal growth, and overall development.

After the prizegiving, attention shifted to the Year 13 Leavers, who enjoyed a special lunch in the school’s Assembly Hall. This event allowed the school community to bid farewell to the graduates, celebrate their time at Bethany School, and wish them well as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.

Speech Day was a resounding success, embodying the school’s commitment to nurturing talent, encouraging growth, and celebrating achievements. Through engaging performances, insightful speeches, and a joyful prizegiving ceremony, the event highlighted the rich and vibrant culture within the school.
