prize giving

Towards the end of each year, the school celebrates individual and collective efforts and achievements gained by students through the school’s Prize Giving Day. Prizes are presented to those who have excelled as academics, sportswomen and artists. Prize Giving Day also recognises pupils who have projected positive personalities throughout the year and have contributed immensely to the development and image of the school. In addition to certificates being awarded to students who have excelled in different subjects, there are trophies of great honour, which are also given on the day and they are categorised into Academics, Culture, Sports and Special Trophies.
