Following the success of Isla, Sarah, Celine & Sarah, the Principal was delighted to hold a small celebratory reception for the students and parents who took honours at this year’s UAE Teen Awards.
If you have followed the news, Isla Newton took 1st Place in the U14 category for her skating, whilst only being 11 years of age. Sarah Ahmed took third for her Tae Kwon Do, and all-rounder Celine Slone took 4th in her age category for her Rugby, alongside Tessa du Randt who gained 5th for her Rugby also.
Over some chocolate cake, sandwiches and drinks, the senior team celebrated the success of these students and honoured their achievements.
Tessa & Celine gave a vote of thanks before the Principal awarded them both with their Senior’s Achievement Ties, which Tessa thought was better than the cake. She said that she had eyed up big wins on the rugby field this year, but also this tie!
The Special Achievement Tie is awarded to our 6th Formers who excel in particular areas of sport or academia, and Andrew Thomas, Principal, said, “These two girls have thoroughly earned their Ties and it is with tremendous pleasure that I award them to these two young ladies today. Whilst Isla & Sarah are not yet in the 6th Form, I have no doubt that when they are, they will be quick to achieve theirs too”.
