Itchen Celebrates Another Year of Success
On Monday 17 December, we welcomed back 20 former Itchen students and their families to celebrate their achievements in our annual Celebration Event.
All of the students had been nominated by their teachers for outstanding contributions and efforts relating to their subjects. They were presented with a glass award, certificate and gift voucher by Principal Alex Scott.
The evening was started with a performance of ‘Riptide’ by first year performing arts students Alex Lee and Keevi Maidment, as well as a video presentation showcasing highlights from the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 academic years.
The teachers who had nominated the students had written a passage about their time at Itchen, which was read out by Deputy Principal Becky Stratton and Assistant Principal Steve Perkins. Heads of Faculty were also present to catch up with the students and find out about the amazing destinations they've all gone to since leaving us in the summer.
The evening was concluded with another performance by Alex and Keevi - this time it was 'Million Dreams' from The Greatest Showman.
