STUDENTS REWARDED BY PALMER’S COLLEGE
The hard work and achievements of 280 students from Palmer’s College was rewarded at a Prize Giving Ceremony on Friday 12 November 2010.
This annual event rewards students for a variety of endeavours, including outstanding achievement in exams, contributing to the cultural and social life of the college and 100% attendance. Many students also picked up a £300 William Palmer Bursary that they can claim if they go on to University.
The prizes are provided by the William Palmer College Educational Trust, with some sponsored by local businesses and individuals.
Mark Vinall, Principal of Palmer’s College said, “Our prize giving event is a wonderful celebration of the outstanding achievements of our students and shows them that we appreciate the hard work they put in during their time at Palmer’s College.”
“I would also like to pay special thanks to the William Palmer College Educational Trust for making this event possible, and all businesses and individuals who have sponsored prizes for our students over the years.”
The prizes were handed out by Mark Vinall, Principal, Professor Michael Thorne, Vice Chancellor of Anglia Ruskin University and Rev. Darren Barlow.
The June Sutcliffe Shield is presented to the student who is considered to be the most likely to achieve in the business world, has a positive attitude and a shorthand speed of 80 wpm, and was awarded to Elizabeth Harmer, formerly of St Martins School, Brentwood.
