Think deeply and change the world - that was the message from Chairman of Governors, the Rev Canon Alan Robson, at the end of term awards ceremony at De Aston.
The Rev Robson went on to say what a privilege it was to be chairman of governors at the school, especially as this year marks its 150th year.
“Follow the De Aston tradition and be part of the De Aston legacy,” he told the pupils.
“It is a pleasure to see the wide achievements being made now and I know you will achieve in the future.”
Presentations were made to pupils from years seven to ten for attainment, progress, application and attendance, as well as for achievements in individual subjects.
Three special awards were also made.
The Head’s Award for Excellence went to Poppy Smith, Outstanding Contribution to the School to Rebecca Garbutt and the School Council Award to James Mayer and Bobbie Brader.
Headteacher Ellenor Beighton said the day was a chance to honour and celebrate achievements and “to think, reflect and look forward.”
She also encouraged everyone to “pick up a good book” over the holidays.
