On Friday 30 June, our annual Prizegiving was held in the 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 Cartwright’s address, the Vocal Ensemble performed ‘Where Do We Go From Here?’ which led nicely into Mrs Roberts’ speech. Part way through her speech, the I3 children beautifully sang ‘Sunshine in my Heart’ and Music Scholar, Oscar Harkins, entertained guests with his talented instrumental performance on the trumpet. Richard Rhodes then presented this year’s prizes and trophies before entertaining the audience with his witty account of his days as a headmaster. Head Boy, James Stacey and Head Girl, Pippa McGregor, gave a vote of thanks and the penultimate performance was from the School Choir, performing ‘Ever Wonder’. The whole school then finished the afternoon by performing ‘A Whole New World’ and ‘Golden Days’. 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.
