Year 6 enjoy safe, 'drive-through' celebrations.
Year 6 students and their families each took a special drive to the City Campus gates, to celebrate the graduation of the Class of 2020-21.
Despite school site closure at this time, City Campus was keen to mark this important milestone for it's Year 6 students. Plans were carefully made behind the scenes, to protect the safety of all families and staff involved.
Children were greeted by a selection of the school's teachers and senior management team, before collecting their graduation gifts and taking a series of photos.
Year 6 have been undergoing their programme of transition as they prepare to leave City Campus and take up their guaranteed places in the Senior School at Shrewsbury Riverside.
Students have been sharing their memories from City Campus, with the strength of community, friendship and teachers emerging as key themes from Year 6’s experiences at the school.
Tony, who has enrolled at the Senior School at Riverside said: "What Shrewsbury means to me is friendship, learning, and communication. We learn together, talk together, and we have grown up together. I’m looking forward to taking my next steps with Shrewsbury at Riverside.”
Ning, who has accepted a place at Cheltenham Ladies College in the UK for her senior school education shared: "Shrewsbury is very important to me. The community that we’ve formed at City Campus and the friends I’ve made are very important to me. The teachers are all very caring and nice, they help me get through hard times and help me when I don’t understand something fully. I will cherish my Shrewsbury memories forever."
Principal Amanda Dennison gave her reflections from this year’s graduation event: "It was so wonderful to be able to see our Year 6 graduates celebrated at our drive-through event this week. Red carpet , music, starfish awards, leavers books, personalised cookies, certificates and that all-important Class of 2021 photograph were collected safely by each of our leavers, with Hollywood-style family photographs taken in abundance!
