SCHOOL NEWS: Congratulations to Preston School’s Class of ‘17
A NIGHT of celebration was held at Preston School in Yeovil during its annual presentation evening for school leavers.
Students who left Preston earlier this year returned to the school to meet up with their former classmates and teachers and were joined by family members for the presentation of awards.
Special guests at the event were Brigadier Darren Cook, plus Cllr Darren and Anna Shutler, the Mayor and Mayoress of Yeovil.
The chairman of Brympton Parish Council, Cllr Barbara Appleby, was present along with Debra Scarratt and Simon Shewry, from Yarlington Housing Group.
Preston School physical education teaching legend John Flatters was also on hand to present an award, as were family members of the late Jeff Stone, a well-known history teacher who died earlier this year following a teaching career which spanned nearly five decades.
School principal Gregg Morrison welcomed everyone to the presentation night and congratulated the students on their achievements, while the reading of names and citations were made by vice principal Clare Marsh.
Talented performer, student Anastacia Hayward, sang Don’t Stop Believing as the musical interlude part of the proceedings.
Students were presented with various subject awards, GCSE certificates and special awards.
A vote of thanks was given by Lauren Bridges and Antony Floyd, the former head girl and heady boy of the Class of ’17.
