Georgina Jeffries | 19/09/17
Last Friday, 14 July, two students at Mont à l’Abbé School were awarded the Voisin Friendship Cup, one of the most sought after prizes at the School’s annual Prize Giving.
This year’s worthy winners are Pedro Sousa who picked up the Junior award and Zuzanna Czerwinska who takes home the Senior Cup. Both have exemplified the school’s ethos of friendship, consideration for others and have greatly contributed to cheerfulness within the learning environment.
Voisin Law has been a loyal supporter of Mont à l’Abbé School for more than a decade and this year the Friendship Cups were presented by Georgina Jeffries, Head of Marketing at the local law firm.
Discussing the annual event Georgina, commented: “The Prize Giving was a wonderful celebration of the childrens’ many achievements over the year and it was a real privilege to award the Friendship Cup to these very worthy winners.”
“The award recognises friendship, kindness and consideration, attributes that are at the very heart of their learning at this wonderful school.”
During the 2017 Prize Giving assembly, the students and teachers and supporters of the school, also took the opportunity to bid a fond farewell to head teacher Sharon Eddie who has led the school for 16 years and is now taking early retirement.
Georgina continued, “Sharon Eddie has done a wonderful job as head teacher and we are sad to say goodbye but we wish her a very happy retirement and look forward to continuing our support with Liz Searle at the helm.”
The two winners will keep their cups for a year and will have their names engraved on a special plaque in the School’s reception area. As part of their prize, the winners will be have the opportunity to enjoy an adventurous trip aboard WetWheels with their families this Summer.
