Lindsay Ward, vice principal of the school, handed out the awards and paid tribute to the winners for their efforts during what had been a challenging term due to the ongoing issues with the pandemic.

She said: “It’s been a very long term but it’s important that we celebrate the success and achievements of our young people and give them the accolades that they deserve.

“We recognise that during this difficult time so many young people are doing exactly what we expect of them on the way to becoming a good citizen and a good person.”
