Our annual Kirkham Grammar Junior School Prizegiving was held in Summerlee Hall this afternoon. The whole school family gathered together for one of the highlights of the academic year. The afternoon began with a few words from KGS Headmaster, Mr Berry followed by the KGJS Orchestra performing ‘The James Bond Theme’ and ‘Thank You for the Music’. After Mr Kollard’s address, the Vocal Ensemble performed ‘Can You Hear Me’ which led perfectly into Mrs Roberts’ 13th and final Prizegiving speech. Part way through her speech, the infant children sang ‘Try Your Best’ and this year’s Music Scholar, Brooke Medhurst sang ‘I Have a Bonnet Trimmed with Blue’ and ‘Maybe’, entertaining the audience with their beautiful voices. A film featuring KGJS pupils from Pre-School through to J4 superbly summarised the academic year. Dr Jennifer Patel, an Old Kirkhamian, then presented this year’s prizes and trophies before delivering an inspiring speech to the audience, concluding with ‘Everything is possible, even the impossible’. Head Boy, Alexander Davies and Head Girl, Leoma Gill, gave a vote of thanks and the penultimate performance was from the School Choir, performing ‘The Time I Spent With You’ and ‘The Prayer’. The whole school then finished the afternoon by performing ‘Anything Can Happen’ from ‘Mary Poppins’ and the School Hymn, ‘Seek Ye First The Kingdom of God’. Afterwards, a delicious buffet was served for all the J4 children, their parents and invited guests in the Senior School dining room. This occasion was a fitting conclusion to the J4 children's time at KGJS who will be moving on to new adventures in September! Thank you to everyone who joined us this afternoon.
