“The events of the last 18 months have been extremely challenging but through their commitment and determination they will all move on to their next stage fully equipped for successful futures. 

“I know that the students would also want me to publicly recognise the contribution of their teachers. 

“Their skill and dedication ensured the students were fully prepared and able to achieve these fantastic results.”
