Virtual Leavers Assembly
As we were unable to host our usual Leavers Assembly, we decided to hold a virtual event where girls, staff and parents could still celebrate their successes.
Our Leavers Assembly is a celebration at the end of the academic year to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of every Kilgraston girl.
Instead of being held in the Chapel, this year’s event was held online where parents, girls and staff could tune it to watch the event together.
The event began with Reflection from Mr Allaker, our Chaplain, live from the Chapel. This was followed by the leaver’s concert pieces from each year group. The Upper 6 then gave a beautiful zoom choir performance of ‘You Say’. After some parent advice came the Lower 6 montage which was the penultimate feature before the final address.
The final addresses came from our Head Girl, Alice, our Head of Sixth Form, Mrs McCormick and our Headmistress, Mrs MacGinty.
Alice, our Head Girl reflected on her time at Kilgraston, remembering when her year group entered the theatre a year ago: ”Myself and the rest of the year came crashing into the theatre singing ‘Don’t Forget Where You Belong’, we had to make a grand entrance which I think is quite telling of our year, we gave everything 110% and spent most of our time singing, or just being generally loud” she continued with a heartfelt thank you to from her year group to the teachers and wider Kilgraston community: ”I don’t think there is enough time in the world or words in the dictionary for me to say all the thank yous that the U6 and I have for Kilgraston, we wouldn’t be the people we are today without the School and we will treasure the memories from our time at Kilgraston for the rest of our lives. I’m sure we will be back as soon as we can to say our proper goodbyes and most likely sing one last song.”
Mrs McCormick, Kilgraston’s Head of Sixth Form said “The leaving class of 2020 have really lived up to the Goal of Character this year. Each and every girl has pushed themselves to excel no matter their strengths in a variety of avenues. They have been exceptional prefects, incredible BFG’s and the relationships they have developed with their peers and staff are legendary. I thank them wholeheartedly for embracing all Kilgraston has to offer and making the most of every tradition and opportunity to make memories. I have no doubt that this year group and their incredible Leadership Team will be remembered for years to come. I wish them every success in their future pursuits.”
Best of luck Upper 6, see you soon!Back to News
