Year 11 Commendation Evening

Students of Year 11 and their families attended the Y11 Commendation Evening on the 3rd May 2018.

The evening started with a delightful performance from the Academy Choir who set a great tone to start the event. The evening aimed to celebrate students’ achievements during their time at Park Vale Academy. Students were recognised for their progress, attitude to learning, attendance and significant contribution. Heads of Houses were on hand to announce the awards for students in their Houses and to wish them well in their future endeavours as they prepare to leave the academy.

Our Class of 2017 were also invited and were presented with their examination certificates. Students were recognised for Best Subject Performance and Best Overall Progress.

We also had a fantastic dance performance by Amelia, Miya, Caitlyn and Lucy who received a rapturous applause from the audience. A piece choreographed by the students themselves as part of their GCSE work.

The final presentations of the evening were for Overall Commendations 2018 awarded to Collins Okojie and Overall Best GCSE Performance 2017 awarded to Kaden, both receiving an academy shield from Head Teacher, Mr Bowhay.

All this coupled with an emotional video montage of the last five years made sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the house by the end of the night.  We’re looking forward to many more evenings like this to celebrate our students’ successes.   Well done to them all.
