The Year 9 Awards ceremony is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the achievements of our students during their career at Ivanhoe. Recognising students not only for attainment but also for outstanding effort and an exceptional attitude to learning; students are nominated by their teachers to receive an award. Those students with 4 or more nominations across a variety of subjects are invited to attend the evening event, accompanied by their families.
Our House Leaders, demonstrating how their confidence in public speaking has grown, introduced the awards for their respective houses and presented the certificates. They were also recognised by their own Head of House and thanked for their work during the year.
The culmination of the evening was the presentation of the shields and special awards. The subject area shields were presented by the subject leaders, who gave us an insight into the students who had won, their attitude to learning; the example they set to their peers and their amazing academic achievements in these subjects. Wonderfully, neither the students, nor their families, knew they were receiving the awards and the surprise and joy on their faces as their names were read out was fantastic.
Again, the special award winners did not know in advance. The Principal’s Award is given to the student who statistically, and based on lots of number crunching, has made the most progress across all their subjects, since starting at Ivanhoe. The Resilience Award recognises a student who has overcome personal challenges to become a model student, trying hard in all areas of school life. Finally the outstanding All-Rounder is someone who consistently achieves highly in all areas, has model attendance and fantastic Pro-Social skills. Congratulations to all of our award winners.
We would like to thank Ashby Hastings Rotary Club for their sponsorship of this year’s awards evening, and in particular to Dr. Paul Cook for attending on the evening and assisting in the presentation of the awards.
We would also like to say a huge well done to all of our Year 9 students, We have seen you all develop and grow during your time at Ivanhoe, and now as you become young adults we wish you well as you move on to Ashby School. We hope that you will remember your time at Ivanhoe fondly and have enjoyed the variety of experiences we have given you; to allow you to better understand your skills and strengths and make your future choices.
Finally a big thank you to all of our parents and families, for supporting the school, and most importantly supporting your child. Education does not end at school, and the most successful young people will be encouraged, supported and challenged to achieve at home too.
Wishing you all the best for the future.
