Principal Andrew Bayston handed out the Principal´s Award to Joe McCabe for his outstanding contribution to the school community.
Mr Bayston said: “It’s always wonderful to meet our former Year 13 students at the prize giving certificate evening to catch up with their progress at university, college and work based training.
“To see and hear how they have all managed the transition from school into the next phase is really rewarding.
“This is one of those events that reminds me why teaching is such a great profession and of a job well done!”
