Earlier today, we said farewell to the Upper Sixth and celebrated their last official day with the annual Stand Down assembly.
Students reminisced fondly about their time at Westholme and we were treated to an impromptu dance performance before the celebration assembly drew to a close with a rousing rendition of the hymn, Shine, Jesus, Shine – a definite crowd pleaser!
Many of the students had been at Westholme for over 15 years and pictures from their early days at Nursery and Infant School were shown throughout the assembly. Special thanks were given to the Heads of School, House Captains and Music, Drama and Sports Captains and all students were presented with a commemorative leaving gift.
Mrs Waldron was also presented with gifts; Mrs Horner said a special thank you to her, as she also ‘stands down’ as Head of Sixth Form this year.
After the assembly, students greeted their parents in the Common Room for a special lunch reception, prepared by our superb catering department. Final goodbyes were also said.
Good luck, Class of 2018. We wish you all the very best!
