On Friday 29 June, our annual Junior School Prizegiving was held in Summerlee Hall. The whole school family gathered together for one of the highlights of the academic year. The afternoon began with a few words from Mr Berry, the KGS Headmaster, followed by ‘A Musical Medley’ from the KGJS Orchestra. After Mrs Wareing’s address, the Vocal Ensemble performed ‘I Have a Voice’ which led beautifully into Mrs Roberts’ speech. Part way through her speech, the infant and junior children spoke about their memories from the year and sang ‘Be the Change’ and Music Scholar, Raphael Ikram, entertained guests with his talented instrumental performance on the guitar. Mr Barrie Stacey, ex-KGS Headmaster, then presented this year’s prizes and trophies before entertaining the audience with his account of his Alexa Anderson, gave a vote of thanks and the penultimate performance was from the School Choir, performing ‘Friends to the End’ and ‘You Make Me Strong’. The whole school then finished the afternoon by performing ‘A Million Dreams’ from the film, ‘The Greatest Showman’ and the School Hymn, ‘Seek Ye First’. Afterwards, a delicious buffet was served for all the J4 children, their parents and invited guests in the Senior School dining room. This occasion was a fitting conclusion to the J4 children's time at KGJS who will be moving on to new adventures in September! Thank you to everyone who joined us on Friday afternoon.
