Howick High Prize-Giving
A very special Speech Night and Prize Giving took place at Howick High School on Friday, 16th October, with many memorable moments. Guest Speaker and past pupil, Avril Halstead (Class of 1993), gave a most encouraging and insightful speech, reminding us all that we forget so often what a special village we live in here in Howick, and the role that a great school like Howick High plays in making us the wonderful community we are. Avril reminded us why we can be proud to be educated at such a fine school and hold our heads up high when networking within national and global spheres. It was most fitting that Avril, who received the first ever White Blazer and Gold Badge for achieving Colours in Academics, Sport and Culture, was present to witness our most recent recipient, Grace Crooks (Head Girl 2015), receiving her White Blazer. In closing the event, Mr Dave Bailey (Vice Principal), paid tribute to Mr Robert Langley, Howick High School’s Headmaster for the past 13 years, who will be retiring at the end of this year.
