Year 11 Achievement Ceremony


by Paula

The Sports Hall was bursting at the seams for our Year 11 Achievement Ceremony held on the last day before half term with over 400 students and their supporters in attendance.  Mr Askar Sheibani, Managing Director of the Comtek Group provided the audience with an inspiring and thought-provoking insight into his journey to lead a successful local and global business operation. Once again Mr Kevin Davies expertly hosted proceedings and fantastic musical items were performed by Abi, Molly, Milly, Daisy, Emily and Miriam – our Year 11 Jazz Ensemble, and Courtney’s moving vocal performance touched everyone in the room. Mr Croasdale shared a few fond stories as he looked back over the last five years – it seems like yesterday when those little Year 7s joined Castell Alun back in 2009 and look at them now! Spontaneous applause accompanied the students as they very calmly and professionally walked up on to the stage in turn to receive their Achievement Folders – a huge ‘da iawn’ to everyone involved in making it a day to remember forever. We wish Year 11 students all the very best as they now near the end of their exams, and look forward to seeing them on results day – the future looks bright as we also look forward to welcoming many back into Year 12 in September!
