Pride of Grainville 11
Monday 3rd June 2013
The School have recently held the 11th Pride of Grainville Awards where the school community actively celebrates and recognises the achievements of our staff and students. Unlike our other award ceremonies during the year the main focus of Pride of Grainville is not academic or sporting excellence, but recognising achievements of students in several areas including caring in the community, overcoming challenges to learning and raising money for charity. As always, the school pulled out all the stops for our award winners converting our school hall in to a fantastic venue reflecting this highly prestigious event.
A huge congratulations to all the award winners. You are indeed the Pride of Grainville.
